This will work.  If you want to get a little fancier, add this to the
ntp.conf file for any host that can access the Internet.

server us.pool.ntp.org

You only have to do this on one host.

Another approach is to put

broadcastserver yes

on the Master and

broadcastclient yes

on all the others.  (Note:  check the man page for exact syntax of
broadcast directives.

Last advice to Dummy 8-) 8-)  In my distribution, there is a
default /etc/ntp.conf file that has lots and lots of comments.  It was
a pretty good NTP for Dummies document.  (Should be in the man page,
but say La Vee ("La Vee" 8-)
