3.4 Event Processing

The significant events of interest in NTP occur upon expiration of a peer timer (peer.timer), one of which is dedicated to each peer with an active association, and upon arrival of an NTP message from the various peers. An event can also occur as the result of an operator command or detected system fault, such as a primary reference source failure. This section describes the procedures invoked when these events occur.
