Yes, 188.8.131.52-102. Also 184.108.40.206 returns poll 4.
I haven't read the RFC but it did seem to be incorrect

I considered that but it stops ntpd working as designed. My
solution is to use "restrict ... ignore". This stops ntpd from
including a particular server without any adverse effects that
I'm aware of.
