I manage two NTP servers in the pool, one in the US and the other in
EMEA.  FWIW The US server has seen a spike in traffic, but I have not
seen a similar spike on the EMEA server.

We've recently experienced a traffic increase on the NTP queries to
NTP pool project ( servers. One theory is that some
service provider NTP infraestructure failed approximately 2 days ago
and traffic is now being redirected to servers belonging to the NTP
pool project.

Does anyone from the service provider community have any comments?
