Is a PPS signal not supplied via a hardware link? How would I simulate
the signal using the received timestamps?

I believe I read somewhere that there are PPS systems that do not
supply a timestamp and an external NTP server has to be used to
synchronize time. Couldn't the implemention just ignore the timestamps?
