Description

It is considered a general best practice to use at least three NTP servers to help identify "falsetickers" (bad clock sources). Unfortunately the pfSense DHCP/DHCPv6 web UI (v2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 at the time of writing) doesn't allow you to specify more than two NTP servers in the "Other Options" section; please consider expanding the number of NTP server options to at least three.

As a reference on the need for more than two NTP servers:

Thank you.
