Cisco CCNA mock exam questions sample test – Question 391

.Which of the following commands sets the local router to serve as an authoritative time source?

A. ntp server
B. ntp master
C. ntp authenticate
D. ntp peer

Correct Answer: B

Explanation:
The ntp master command sets the local router to serve as an authoritative time source.
The ntp server command is used to specify an external time source that the local router should use as its time source.
The ntp authenticate command is used to enable the authentication of time source to which the local router has been configured to use. It is the first step in a process that must also
include the specification of a hashing algorithm and a key, both of which must match on the time source.
The ntp peer command is used to configure the local router to synchronize a peer or to be synchronized by a peer. It does not make the local router authoritative as a time source like
the ntp master command.
