What do you mean by this?  NTP doesn't support isolated operation.

If your previous configuration worked, they are either stratum one
servers already, so they will ignore the new stratum one server, or
they were synchronised to at least one server, so you already have 
the basic configuration for synchronising them to the new stratum
one server.  You might also have had them synchronised to their
local clocks, but in that case, either they have their stratums 
fudged more than two apart, in which case you have an effective 
client server configuration, or they will have been maintaining
completely independent times, because both would reject the other
on the basis of stratum.
