 The usual method is to give it a good starting time at boot. You can too that by adding a battery (or cap) backed RTC chip and setting the system clock to that time before NTP starts. That will speed up convergence. If your embedded system is linux, the command , hwclock, is your friend.

Don’t worry about how powerful the machines are. Worry about who the machines are giving  power to.
