Has anyone seen this message from a WS-C2960S-48FPS-L switch: NTP Core (INFO): x.x.x.x 961D 8D popcorn popcorn

Strange while viewing logfile on a WS-C2960S-48FPS-L I saw several of these messages:

NTP Core (INFO): X.X.X.X  961D 8D popcorn popcorn

Tried searching on internet or on Cisco's sight and did not find results.

What does this mean?

Hello Lancehino.

You are hitting the bug:

Remove "NTP Core (INFO):946D 8D  popcorn popcorn" from 'ntp logging'
