Unless I misunderstand NTP configuration semantics, your additional "restrict" statements for the NTP pool names will do the wrong thing, in that each reference to a given name returns multiple IP addresses, in apparently random order, i.e. an attempt to guarantee no two queries return the same data.

Ergo, those restrict statements will most probably not end up with the same IP address as their preceding "server" statements, as was presumably your intent.

Yes, you are correct.  What should we do?

If you have "restrict default nopeer noquery" (the uncommented line in my commit), then time service will still work, but the configured servers will be denied query permission.

If you use "restrict default ignore", then time service does not work.
