I usually use the US zone for pool.ntp.org for various devices, but for the last couple of weeks it does not resolve from any server I try:

Bash:
> us.pool.ntp.org.
Server:  dns.google
Address:  8.8.8.8

DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
*** Request to dns.google timed-out
> server 1.1.1.1
Default Server:  one.one.one.one
Address:  1.1.1.1

> us.pool.ntp.org.
Server:  one.one.one.one
Address:  1.1.1.1

DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
*** Request to one.one.one.one timed-out
pool.ntp.org is fine

Code:
> pool.ntp.org.
Server:  one.one.one.one
Address:  1.1.1.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    pool.ntp.org
Addresses:  162.159.200.1
          208.81.1.244
          206.75.147.25
          216.197.228.230
Google search doesn't turn up anybody reporting such a thing. Any ideas what could be going on?

Found my answer ten seconds after I posted. It was a config issue with dnsmasq. I had hard-coded the resolver for us.pool.ntp.org so the router could boot and sync time without dnscrypt running yet. OpenDNS servers were not responding properly to the request.
