What else? What sort of cluster do you have? Are there special reasons 
for a special configuration?

I have a HA-cluster (Heartbeat + DRBD) consisting of two nodes. Each of 
the nodes now has its own radioclock-receiver configured to NTP. They 
peer and have outside time servers from pool.ntp.org, and one nearby 
configured - as fallback.
