Thanks for the detailed reply Martin.
It sounds as if MS's W32Time/TimeServ actually does a slightly better
job.
According to
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q246145/
W32Time is aware of leap seconds and will try to step the time shortly
after by polling the server, but with a 15 minute spread so that  the
NTP server doesn't get flooded.

Cheers
