Dr. Mills has spoken many times about the fact that ntpd is used
within the deep-space Interplanetary Internet, most recently on the
NASA missions to Mars. However, I don't know the specifics of the
configurations they have used.
I imagine that if you look around in his website, you will
probably find way more information there on that subject than you
ever possibly wanted to know.
