That's an interesting example. Is the third source specified with the
trust option?

It depends on what exactly you mean by being synchronized with a
source. The characters in the source output indicate the selection
status, whether the source is currently used for synchronization of
the local clock. If it's not, it doesn't mean the local clock is no
longer synchronized. For synchronization status of the local clock
there is the tracking command.
