You need to be very careful if you're going to use routers as
time servers. See
Now, you could probably set up the routers as broadcast time
servers, and they'd still be fine (not much extra load there, and no
expensive associations between the servers and the clients to be
worried about). But don't set them up as manycast or unicast time
servers, unless you want to run into the issues mentioned at the URL
