Technical Summary This document describes a new DHCPv6 option for passing a list of SNTP server addresses to a client. Working Group Summary This document was developed by the DHC WG. The document was updated to address AD Review comments, including the removal of the timezone option (which may be published separately) and changing the document to indicate that it configures SNTP clients, not full NTP clients. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman. RFC Editor note: In Section 4, paragraph one, change the last sentence from: The server MAY list the SNTP servers in the order of preference. to The server MAY list the SNTP servers in decreasing order of preference.
