time.uvm.edu currently maps to ns2.uvm.edu, the backup DNS server.
Would be a shame if that wasn't working
Never trust ping -- lots of machines disable their pinagability
I just ran "ntpdate time.uvm.edu" on my favorute unix box, and got
Looking for host time.apple.com and service ntp
host found : time0.apple.com
Looking for host time.uvm.edu and service ntp
host found : ns2.uvm.edu
On my second favorite unix box...
