Uh, why. Looks like the Right Thing is already in there:
server 0.freebsd.pool.ntp.org iburst maxpoll 9
server 1.freebsd.pool.ntp.org iburst maxpoll 9
server 2.freebsd.pool.ntp.org iburst maxpoll 9
#server 3.freebsd.pool.ntp.org iburst maxpoll 9
This conforms with:
Get your vendor zone
To allow you to use the pool as the default time service in your
application, we will set you up with special hostnames, for example
1.vendor.pool.ntp.org, 2.vendor.pool.ntp.org and 3.vendor.pool.ntp.org.
You must absolutely not use the default pool.ntp.org zone names as the
default configuration in your application or appliance.
You can apply for a vendor zone here on the site.
So the problem is that the original poster changed it *away* from the
freebsd subdomains to the *us* subdomains. This is neither necessary
nor advised. That's what I was complaining about.
