I have several machines running 16.10, both servers and laptops, all on the same network. All of them occasionally have the same problem with NTP. The clock drifts slightly out of sync and when I check the NTP peers there is only one and it's not being used.

I've tried with the default Ubuntu
ntp.conf server list (from 0 to 3) of
pool 0.ubuntu.pool.ntp.org iburst ...
And also with the standard ntp list (also from 0 to 3) like so:
server 0.pool.ntp.org ...
But the issue is the same. The IP address of the unused server is always the same on all the machines, regardless of their
I can temporarily solve it by making a change to
ntp.conf and restarting
ntpd but would like to fix the source of the problem so that useful peers are found automatically.
What can I try to fix this?
