ntpq vs new DNS

For server slots specified by name, the new DNS returns both the local IP 
Address and the hostname.  Servers specified by numerical address don't 
return a hostname.

The current ntpq gives preference to the hostname slot.  That works for pool 
slots where the address is useless.  It's much more complicated for things 
  server 0.us.pool.ntp.org

I think changing a few lines will revert to the previous behavior.

Does anybody have any great ideas for how to take advantage of this extra 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
