    So the server's local time is actually synchronized from an external 
source? Can you be more specific about what the source of time is for the 
reference clock and how it communicates this to the computer?

    You can fudge the local reference clock to a lower stratum, but this is 
dangerous because NTP has no way to know whether the reference clock is 
working or not.
