If the remote servers have root distance larger than combinelimit
times the local root distance, they shouldn't be combined with the
local servers. You would probably need a local stratum-1 server for
this to work as you intend.

You configure both, but the prefer option should be enough. If at
least one source with the prefer option passes the falseticker test,
all sources that don't have the option will be ignored, even if they
would pass the combining limit.
