Hello Viraj,

I recall to have tested that about a year ago on a TNT unit and the timer is 
set to the effective session time. Trainup and auth times are left out. 
There may be a slight "fuzziness" in session duration, however, perhaps 
around five seconds or so.

>Related to this, does the Acct-Session-Time in accounting include that
>pre-authentication time as well?

Nope. Acct-Session-Time includes only the effective session time. You have 
Ascend-PreSession-Time if you want to know the other magnitude.
