You can't: You need at least one known good source (i.e. a 
hacked-together box with a GPS) which you just use to verify which of 
your alternatives have the best local clock and behaves best.

You can use the GPS test machine to poll both your servers, with 
clockstat logging, to verify the offset behavior.
