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.

[Imagine - my DNS resolution is more accurate than yours....!]
