[ntp:questions] Cluster NTP configuration

Synchronization to a tenth of a second is fine for my purposes.  All servers will be running RH 5.5.

My concern is centered around a bad local clock.  If I lose my external connections, will a bad hardware clock start to cause large incremental corrections?

Thanks,

You left off the most important bit of information.  How much error
can you allow.  Do all the computers need to stay together withing a
few microseconds or is 1/10 of a second good enough?  Also what
operating systems are in use.
