What is the reason to keep track if we asked all servers, and not just
decrease the frequency of switching them?

There is also some code in src/timesync/timesyncd-manager.c +209:
  /* re-arm timer with increasing timeout,
  in case the packets never arrive back */

which used to work but maybe broke with other changes.
