I would say thats a pretty insecure idea...

You could run a NTP infrastructure hierarchy with an external or 
internal reference device depending on what type of evidence you need to 
create *(if any). NTP wasnt designed as a strong-evidence source but 
rather a calibration tool so it needs to be coddled to make it create 
really reliable forensic evidence but hey - no problem.
