12.29 NTP peer

I have 2 questions about the NTP peer configuration.

In this task, R4 and R6 are configured as a stratum 5 and one of the requirement is to synchronize them each other.

[Q1]

Some Document says when the ntp peer is configured to the routers, these routers' clock are coordinated  and adjusted each other's time.

But I cannnot imagine how do they adjust each other's time because their statum is same 5.

(If they have different stratum, the lower one adjust to the higher one)

If you have any idea, please share your information.

[Q2]

In this solution, "ntp peer" command is configured to both two routers.

Is this needed?

I heard that "ntp peer " commnad is needed to the only one side generally.

 

Thanks,

Masahiko
