I have a similar problem. In a closed environment I have to sync time from
ntp server and I get stratum 16. ntpdate reports OK and syncs the time.
other machine that have to sync with our ntp receive also stratum 16. If I
tell our server that it has stratum 9 all other machines can sync with our
ntp server, but this is not what we want. So why would ntp server get
stratum 16?
