Hi

  I have a network that has 3 different sites, with each site on a
different continent. Each of the sites is connected directly to the
internet and the 3 sites are intterconnected to each other with VPN. 2
of the sites are Windows (only)networks and thus have their clocks
synchronized (only internally) by the domain controllers of the site's
domain. The 3rd site is built from a mix of *UX and Windows servers
(some of them with and some without Active Directory).
  The obvious thing to do is to setup the Windows domain controllers as
SNTP clients of some external reliable NTP server (probably from
pool.ntp.org) in each (Windows only) site and setup a NTP subnet in the
mixed environment with the windows domain controllers and the stand
alone servers as SNTP clients of some local NTP servers. Should I
should attempt to synchronize the clocks between sites or trust the
fact that each site is synchronized with external, and reliable,
sources?


TIA 
Paolo
