SNTP with wrong NTP server generates enormous DNS traffic

Our networking department recently changed our NTP server without us knowing. The old server no longer responded to NTP syncing. We have a dozen or so base stations. They generated _millions_ of DNS nxdomain queries daily when the server was wrong. That's..not..good.

    Not sure how that is an InfraSensing issue.

    1/ your networking department did a critical network change without informing you
    2/ DNS server was not being monitored to catch the issue

    As an alternate solution you could maybe use a public NTP server?

    Please mention hardware version and firmware version when you post an issue. As we can't pass any enhancement suggestion to our R&D team without that critical information.
