I did not remove anything, I coded that from a blank file.  :-)

Yup, agreed.  I never intended this to replace the basic ntp.conf.

OTOH, some things, like the pool comments, should be in the basic
config.  Giving people in the USA a default config that send them to
pool servers on the other side of the planet is a bad thing.

Yes, I know the doc says otherwise, but I just tested the pool and it
gave me a chimer in Switzerland, German, Czech Republic and one in New

No wonder the pool ha a bad rep.
