Thanks for the tip, but these are customer systems. Most of them only 
buy one server system from us and have Windows clients behind. So 
there is no other system available, which could be master. Instead, 
our server is supposed to be time master. :)

From customer point of view, the mail server does not work without 
reason. An error message would help to understand the problem and the 
proposed behaviour would keep dovecot running. Now some of them just 
reboot the system (Windows users...), this is not the desired
