time.nist.gov stopped working early last month. One of my ancient 
linux boxes drifts very badly, and I noticed some really bad 
time stamps.

I currently use time-a.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov

Below is a list of stratum 1 and 2 ntp servers.


|I had been using time.nist.gov up until around the time I moved.  I
|experienced the rdate hang as well, so I started using time.mit.edu (I am
|closer to it now, so it was probably appropriate regardless of
|time.nist.gov's status).
|My point: I was experiencing problems around about Dec/Jan time period
|with time.nist.gov.
