Yes, and no! I have been working with NTP and ISPs for too long! I had
wrongly compared NTP and BIND, thinking that the multiple DNS servers you
need to set up for an ISP would also be required to be set up for a local
DNS server. I now realise that is not the case, as everything starts from
the root servers. Having the multiple servers on NTP (for a completely
different reason..) only confused my initial thinking further.
