1 - so that all systems interwork correctly with other servers and 
networking kit.

2 - so that your management tools are consistent throughout the 
organisation, minimising training and overheads.

3 - so that you can monitor the systems more easily.  Simple command-line 
tools such as "ntpq" may not be available for the non-reference 
implementation.

Cheers,
David
