I've had multiple time geeks tell me that leap-smearing is pretty
different from strict-RFC NTP, and Google themselves say on that page:
"We recommend that you don?t configure Google Public NTP together with
non-leap-smearing NTP servers."
So it looks like we shouldn't mix and match. And since most folks
should probably want some heterogeneity in their NTP, it may be a
little premature to jump on the leap-smear bandwagon just yet.
I'm vague on the details, so I could be wrong.
Does anyone know of any other (non Google) leap-smearing NTP implementations?
