Now THAT is a happier looking system!!  Your servers all seem to agree 
on what time it is within the limits of what you can do over the 
internet.  Run it that way for a week or two and keep an eye on it.  You 
may find that you want to try to replace one or two of your worst 
performing servers but you'll need some experience with what you've got 
to be sure and you may not be able to find anything better to replace 
them with.
