Which messages are you looking at?

There is a leap-pending flag in the T2 message.  I don't see it on yet.

ntpd has a hack filter to ignore it unless the month is June or December.  
That's leftover from 2008.  I looked in my old log files.  It didn't come on 
until July 28, late in the day UTC.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
