I've seen monitoring data from the NTP pool project for people using other NTP implementations, and they don't seem to be nearly as reliable timesources as the original ntpd implementation. It's not just my opinion:
"Use the standard ntpd
We are all for software diversity, but a significant percentage of the "it's not working" questions that come in are for software other than ntpd. You can use the pool with any program speaking NTP, but if you are going to join the pool we recommend you use ntpd."
Can you give me a pointer to some IPs in the NTP pool using crony, so we can check their scores at http://www.pool.ntp.org/scores/IP ...?
