Until that happens we could add a script that collects these snippets
into a single ntp.conf file instead.

I'm not sure about that 64s part in the iburst explanatation.  My
understanding is that ntpd start up with minpoll=3, so the requests to a
server would initially be 8s apart and then growing to whatever maxpoll
is set to.  With iburst you start out with 2s spaced requests, so
essentially minpoll=1, which you can't set otherwise anymore (minpoll is
limited to at least 3 IIRC).
