It doesn't have to be an "external source", if cheap is
 not a goal, and isolation from the rest of the world is.

 They can get their own in-house frequency standard(s),
  to PPS discipline their NTP server(s).

I'm certain the sales people at Symmetricom could provide
 them with NTP servers that don't make use of any outside
 world references.

 symmetricom.com sells Cesium, Rubidium and Hydrogen Maser Standards

 quartzlock.com sells Rubidium Standards
    (and used to sell Hydrogen Maser Standards?)

 novatech-instr.com sells Rubidium Standards
