On the face of it, that doesn't sound too hard:

I presume you start with the us system clock which is capable of being 
slaved to another system, so they'll run in lockstep?

If so, you 'only' have to emulate another mainframe's clock, sync this 
clock via ntp, and slave the attached machine(s) to it?
