[ntp:questions] problem with synchronizing two comps to each other

so you're telling, that it will be easier to update time from external 
server? beacause I thought, that if 1 comp (master) keeps the time, the 
other one (client) will adjust to it over LAN network. That it will give 
beter results in setting the same time on both comps.

I want to do that, because I want to measure the delay (latency) of 
packet (the time between send and recieved). It's done by a software, 
calleg mgen, which sends packets with timestamps, and then reciever 
reads this timestamp, reads his own time, and puts them both into the 
text file. The test should probably take about 24h max, so thats the 
time i need these both computers to be synchronized with accurancy of 1 
ms, or maybe more, if there is no way in keeping 1ms accurancy.

Or maybe you have other hint's how to measure the delay?
