Similarly to the multicast mode, the manycast/anycast mode is a feature of SNTP and the evolving NTP version 4. The SNTP specification (RFC 2030) refers to this mode as anycast. NTP version 4 notes refer to this mode as manycast. NTP vendors seem to

make no distinction between the expressions. For the purpose of this work, the two expressions are considered synonymous and may be used interchangeably. The anycast mode allows NTP clients to send time synchronization requests to a designated multicast address (224.0.1.1). In turn, servers that have been configured for the anycast mode respond to the client requests with unicast messages. A unicast reply from a server to a client, following a multicast request from a client, implies that both the server and the client now know each other s IP addresses. Clients then form associations with the servers that respond first, ignoring responses from other servers. The subsequent traffic between the clients and servers is unicast, falling into the point-to-point NTP mode category. From the network administration perspective, the advantage of the anycast mode is that clients do not have to be preconfigured with the IP addresses of the servers in order to obtain the NTP synchronization service. However, the routing of multicast traffic must be supported between the clients and servers, unless all of them are part of the same subnet. An additional network administration consideration for the anycast and multicast modes is the isolation of the multicast traffic only to the required subnets rather than allowing its propagation throughout the entire network. The practice of limiting the propagation of multicast traffic to a designated domain may take the form of the following: Adjusting the Time to Live (TTL) counter in the IP header of the multicast messages to a value that predetermines the maximum number of hops (routers) that the messages will go through. The TTL field can assume a maximum value of 255. Should the value of TTL for originating multicast messages be left at 0, it means that the messages could go through hundreds of routers (and subnets) before reaching the maximum value of 255 and being discarded. Enabling multicast routing in a very selective manner, only where it is required for NTP operations, rather than throughout the whole network.

Some installations, of course, may not view the NTP multicast traffic as a sufficient enough burden upon the computational network resources in order to allocate the necessary human resources for a proper multicast network design.

Broadcast Multicast Manycast/anycast
Out of the three NTP mode categories, the NTP devices that operate in any of the point-to-point modes which are also referred to as the unicast modes will require the maximum level of configuration. This means that the IP addresses of the communicating NTP devices have to be explicitly identified in the device configuration files, which potentially makes the configuration process unscalable in very large deployments. Lack of configuration scalability often leads to misconfigurations and a subsequent lack of time synchronization and/or the appearance of erroneous timestamps throughout a network. However, to support NTP unicast mode operations, there are no additional routing configuration requirements beyond what s already needed for any other unicast IP traffic. The availability of the point-to-multipoint and the multipoint-to-point modes eases the NTP configuration and scalability burden. However, these modes require network administrators to ensure that multicast routing is properly supported and enabled and that NTP broadcast traffic is localized to the directly connected subnets or routers are configured to selectively forward it to intended destinations.
NTP Variables and Procedures
Many algorithms or procedures undergird the time synchronization process among NTP devices. They include clock-update, primary-clock, transmit, receive, packet, clear, pollupdate, clock-filter, clock-selection, and multiple initialization procedures. While the developers of NTP products need to be familiar with the inner workings of these procedures, network administrators who are responsible for configuring and troubleshooting NTP deployments are mostly interested in the variables (and their values) that are employed in those procedures.
