OK, I failed to realize that you were actually talking about your
experience with the wording "I'm not entirely certain what will happen,
but it most likely won't be good". Anyway, configuring a local clock
should not be needed for this purpose, and if it was in your setup,
maybe there is a bug somewhere.
