The answer is very simple from my statistics:
Even with two "official" timeservers from government,
- ptb.de had a maximum offset of 26 ms (average below 1 ms)
- metrologie.at had a maximum offset of 145 ms (average below 2 ms)
within last week, wheras my DCF77 had max. offset of 6 ms (avg. 0.04 ms).
