[ntp:questions] How to use ntpd as a sntp server?

Since it seems that the sntp server that is included in the ntp distro is broken, and recommended not be used.  How can I do this with ntpd.
This is for a couple of embedded machines that I want one machine to have a time server on it to keep both machines in sync.  It is more important that they remain in sync than have the correct time.  I tried using ntpd on the server, but it won't let the other client sync to it because it says it doesn't have a low enough stratum, and no reference time.  I just want it to return its current time, and not worry about the quality of the time it is returning.  How can I do this?
