It actually does end up being a lot. My fairly modest public ntp server
gets about an average 11.38pps in traffic which ends up being almost
4GB/month. It ends up being about 2,300 unique clients over the perioud
an hour. While I'm unsure of how many routers D-Link sold, but I would
be suprised if it's not at least 100x that.
