It's not a random address. It's the default port number to use when you say
server bob.example.com nts
You can specify a port number with:
server alice.example.com:567 nts
"pre-arrangement" and "existing channel" are interesting terms. You don't
specify the port number when you use ssh or http to talk to a box. (At least
most of the time.)
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
