NTP page allows adding more time server rows than it saves to the configuration
The NTP configuration page has a button to add more time servers to use as a time source. Only 10 servers are saved to the configuration but the page allows you to add as many rows as you like, storing only the first 10. This should be changed to only allow the creation fields for as many time sources as will actually be saved to the config.
Bug #7164 Limit NTP time source fields to the maximum number saved to configuration.

I can't answer the question of why other than it is generally not recommended to specify a large number of time servers. The limit is simply within the page and ntp would allow more if the page saved more to the configuration. Why the limit was chosen as 10 in the past I do not know. But I consider that to be a separate request. I just think if there is a limit the page should actually use it.

Most likely limited to 10 because historically anything above 10 best servers was discarded as a potential peer . May not be applicable any more but cannot see the point here configuring inordinate amount of NTP servers, basically abuse of free service.
