I've read Apple's docs, and assuming they use more or less the original
ntpd for Darwin, all they're doing is speeding up the *initial*
synchronization, because that's what iburst is for. The claim that it
takes several hours of constant access doesn't hold for vanilla ntpd's
default poll cycles.

Hmmm... I know that my Linux box occasionally locks up when being woken
(especially after using the BTTV/television PCI card), but it doesn't
have issues with synchronization or something. It does use a
masquerading router though.
