NTP behavior on the management backplane
We see NTP for 127.3.0.1, .2, .3, .4 on our guests in INIT or STEP for all 4 blades. These guests are syncing successfully to external NTP servers and do not show Peer Time Out of Sync prompts.
From what I read in /etc/ntp.conf, these would only be used internally if the configured external NTP sources can't be reached.
Are the INIT and STEP statuses cause for concern or normal behavior?
