I've had things work either way -- a single source that's good can be
rock solid.  But once I was using the standard 3 sources and had NTP
go off-sync once an hour.  For some reason, one of the sources would
go haywire every hour, and drag NTP's clock far enough off that it
would eventually rebel, change to another source, and step the clock.
After 10 minutes, things would settle down, and NTP would switch back
to the first source.  Ugh.
