I'm not sure why or if its supposed to be this way, but out
of the 6 current nameservers for pool.ntp.org, 5 allow zone
You could slave the pool.ntp.org zone on your system and query locally.
"heartbeat-interval" and "dialup" look to be two helpful options for
named.conf if this is a route that can be relied upon.
