There used to be only 4.  Then we had a bug report from a person who was 
actually using multiple PPS devices and was confused because he couldn't
have both an in-line segment and PPS segment for all of them.  

So I boosted the number of NTP segments allocated to twice the max number
of devices, which by default equals 8.

This is a recent change and can easily be rolled back if I have misunderstood
thwe interface.
