    Re: Problem with Time-Server from NIST
    From: Richard B. Langley
    Date: 2011 Apr 8, 10:56 -0300

    A couple of corrections:
    1) There is no time scale called UTC1. It is just UTC, although there
    are different national versions, such as UTC(USNO).
    2) Although there have been discussions about terminating leap
    seconds, the final decision has not yet been made and, if it should be
    made, it will not go into effect for some years.
