	That says, inter alia : 

	If your Internet provider has a timeserver, or if you know of a 
good timeserver near you, you should use that and not this list - you'll 
probably get better time and you'll use fewer network resources

-- which is exactly what I'm trying to do.

	Btw, ntpq -pn does have an asterisk; and whois resolves that IP 
and three more as belonging to Virginia Tech, which is two or three miles 
away.

	My thanks for both replies!
