Regulatory action saying that there will be no more leap seconds in
radio broadcast time signals will not fix devices which are claiming
the existence of leap seconds which were never announced nor
implemented by the radio broadcast time signals.

The false servers in the NTP pool cannot be fixed by issuing a document.
