    It would be helpful if time /s could be enhanced to support the use of NTP, and in particular the NTP Pool servers (see http://www.pool.ntp.org).

    V11 now uses SNTP.

    It *is* using NTP (port 123, UDP) now, though, apparently not correctly. I just
    used it (42 ms round trip) and my clock is now more than .9 sec off (>900 ms)
    (according to NIST's software and my TIMESYNC, which agree).

    Sorry, I didn't realize they used the same port.
