Can jack_load netmanager/jackd -dnet provide transport sync?  I don't 
see it listed in jackd -dnet -h or params available for netmanager
I've been using (under jack2 (actually master can be jack1)):
Master(jack1) - jack_netsource ...
slaves(jack2) - jackd -dnetone ...
this provides great transport sync between 1 master/3 slaves.
jackd -dnet under jack1 still seems to have 2(ish) second lag for slave 
transport roll.
