My argument is that debconf priority low is defined to be used in user
interaction. If, in the opinion of the maintainer, there is a resonable
default, policy instructs him hat the interaction should be avoided.
If CDDs want to use debconf in these cases, priority low is not appropriate.

(For your reference of the NTP howto: The howto & faq on ntp.org
contains dead links in the server selection section. My guess that it
was written before there was pool.ntp.org.)

Kind regards
