Wonderful suggestion Bill. I missed that option.
Thank you as always.

I installed and used NTP Meinberg a
year ago with great success until something new occurred
recently. Basically my setup takes forever to reach the "377"
mark . It used to be a couple of minutes in the past, not half
1/2 hour or more now.. I use the "ntpq -p " (Auto-Refresh every
10s) rather than entering. "ntpq -pn".on the command prompt. I
have the "Disable other time Services" checked on Win 10 PRo
Within the documentation I have I
cannot find any ways to change the 3 URL designations that came
up when I installed the program and wonder if any of them is
different from the past. Curiosity led me to search where these
physical locations were. Referring to the picture below, they
are respectively "Asia Pacific Network Information Center'',
'University of Madison Wisconsin" and "Los Angeles CA.". When I
start the display, the top one is always marked with a +.
After a (long) while, the other ones will connect and
eventually the 377 number will appear. The offset will then be
within + or - milliseconds. I wonder if my initial connection
is somewhere across the globe when I start, and the huge delay
before reaching the 2 other addresses and the expected result.
Is there any way I could change this situation and possibly
connect to a more local or close network instead of the existing
one out of nowhere ?
Thank you for any help.
the Meinberg NTP client installer suggests you select pool
servers from the pool.ntp.org project, using pool servers allows
the best performing servers to be rotated every few minutes so you
get best synchronization. All you should have to do is select 3 or
4 pool servers from your local pool, something like:
See https://www.pool.ntp.org/en/use.html for details.
Make sure you have the 'iburst' attribute on each server line in
your configuration file to obtain fast initial synchronization.
