Re: Hex Lite and NTP client updates

Yes, and the docs tell you that it repeats that lookup each time it tries to sync with SNTP on ROS v6 when you set it via server-dns-names. This is what allows it to be evergreen; as public NTP servers come and go, the round-robin results of a DNS lookup on that name change accordingly.
