For me, traceroute from Sydney, Australia to time.asia.apple.com. goes
across the pond to SanJose1.level3.net, then back across to Apple
Computer Singapore - ~363.240 ms

time.euro.apple.com goes via the US - ~324.865 ms

time.apple.com is about 6 hops and ~180 ms closer.

Avoid reality at all costs.
