The active port in the bonding interface identified on the command line with the -i option is the active clock. In the event of failure of the active port:

  • If the standby port is a PTP capable port, synchronization will continue. The standby port clock is synchronized to the active port clock.
  • If the standby port is a port that does not support hardware timestamps, the system clock becomes the LRC and sfptpd uses software timestamping.
