Maybe there's an ntp expert out there who can help me with this. I have an NTP server serving our local network. It is
set up to use pool.ntp.org servers for it's upstream sync. ntpq -p reveals that the server is stuck on stratum 16,
which I understand means "not synced". The clients are unable to sync with my local server because of this. Here's the
output of ntpq -p along with my ntp.conf file:
[root@ntpserver /root]# ntpq -p
