How to configure IP address of local NTP Server in /etc/ntp.conf

and is there something else to remark? Local NTP server in same network segment as RS should be the first choice. Found a lot of information but I am not quite shure how to proceed correctly. Many thanks in advance.

I use a local GPS based NTP server here.

I edited/etc/ntp.conf in this section:

# maps to about 1000 low-stratum NTP servers.  Your server will
# pick a different set every time it starts up.  Please consider joining the
# pool: <>
server iburst
server iburst
server iburst

The address ending in 92 is my local server.

This is what I see on NTPQ

ntpq> peers
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
*chronos.fios-ro .PPS.            1 u  283  512  377    0.610   -0.197   0.066
+io.netbunker.or    2 u  101  512  377   10.172    0.873   0.415
 tick.chi1.ntfo.     3 u  73m  256    0   20.247    0.957   0.000    2 u 1557  512  304   71.661    4.078   0.532

The “chronos.fios-ro .PPS” entry is the name of my local server and it is tagged with an asterisk indicating that Linux is using it (as it has the best statistics).

Many thanks for information! I’ll try it.
