[ntp:questions] Undisciplined Local Clocks

I notice that most ntp.conf examples that I have seen contain the lines:-

"server 127.127.1.0	# local clock",   and
"fudge  127.127.1.0 stratum 10"	

Questions -

Are there any consequences in leaving these lines out?

In the extreme case of an isolated group of peers, is there any advantage
in ALL the peers including them?

I am a relative novice currently playing with a couple of NTP servers,and  
hope soon to install a radio clock interface on one of them.  

See http://www.buzzard.org.uk/jonathan/radioclock.html 

Many thanks
