2. Historical Service Addresses

The NTP service was once more complex with seperate stratums and an enforced hierarchy. There are a large number of devices in the university using the older service addresses and so to this end the older DNS names and addresses are maintained for the time being to reduce workload on IT staff university-wide.

The following addtional addresses are currently supported but should not be entered in new configuration:

ntp4.ox.ac.uk      has address
ntp0.oucs.ox.ac.uk has address
ntp1.oucs.ox.ac.uk has address
ntp2.oucs.ox.ac.uk has address
ntp3.oucs.ox.ac.uk has address

A DNS round robin of ntp.oucs.ox.ac.uk exists for the historical stratum 3 service.
