I didn't know about orphan mode, so I had to try it right away.

$ cat /etc/ntp.conf
server mode 14
fudge time1 0.236
tos orphan 5
$ ntpq -p
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
*GENERIC(0)      .DCFa.           0 l  27h   64    0    0.000   -1.255   0.793

Shouldn't ntpd have figured out by now that the clock is gone (I
unplugged it yesterday) and have switched into orphan mode?
