I assume from this that you are timestamping transactions and that is
the reason for your concern. I'd definitely buy a number of refclocks of
different varieties and install them internally but in a number of
different locations and then set up the critical systems to point to
them as well as a number of external S1 sources. Terje has indicated how
he has done this for his company and he has some good advise here.
