[time-nuts] NTP problem on Windows

As a test, I just restarted the NTP service on the PC that was off. It is 
now keeping the correct time. Strange.

The reference NTP implementation - of which Meinberg provides a packaged

Adding a few more servers to each PC and maybe adding the other PC as a
server would make faultfinding easier.
