[ntp:questions] Using NTP in broadcast mode with no reverse link

Is it possible to use NTP in broadcast mode where there is no reverse path
back to the server?  I'd like to configure it in a way that hard codes the
one way latency and completely avoids the initial burst-mode startup exchanges
(or any other exchanges that might occur later due to time problems).  I'm
obviously willing to give up a fair bit of accuracy in exchange for only one-way
communication.
