3.1.5.2 Special Root Dispersion Behavior

The client SHOULD set the Root Dispersion value in the request to 0xAAAAAAAA. If the response that is returned from the server contains a Root Dispersion value of 0xAAAAAAAA, then the server's response contains a Reference Timestamp value that is relative to the client's clock, and the client MUST NOT process Test 6 defined in [RFC1305] section 3.4.4. If the response that is returned from the server does not contain a Root Dispersion value of 0xAAAAAAAA, then the server's response contains a Reference Timestamp value that is relative to the server's clock, and the client SHOULD process Test 6 as defined in [RFC1305] section 3.4.4.<15><16>
