All the cisco equipment I have runs ntpd. An approximate info about the
local time for nearly all other LAN hosts can be obtained regardless of
their OS. Such info runs throuh a primary mailserver and a special milter
might be enough to dig and log the time differences between the 'date' and
'received' timestamps. But sorry, I don't have such a milter.
