[ntp:questions] Forcing Stratum Level

 I have a closed network that I am using NTPD on to control all the clocks. I can not open the network up to a public time server and I would prefer not to spend the money to hook it up to a GPS. 

I just need all the Windows XP clients to sync their time to the NTPD server. However when I try to sync them I get "The peer's stratum is less than the host's stratum." 

How do I force the NTP server to show as a better stratum?
