[ntp:questions] how many servers should I poll?

I have a small home network, with modest time accuracy requirements --
+/- 1 second is sufficient.  Balancing the desire for accurate time
against the desire to minimize use of public time servers, how many
source servers should I include in my ntp.conf?

I see the list of stratum 2 servers at
http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/clock2a.html.  Are there public
stratum-3 or higher servers that I should use instead?

Thanks, Andrew.
