I'm missing something.  Why set the clock via crontab rather
than telling ntpd to use it as a server?  The latter will
get the stratum right without a local clock.

The suespammers.org mail server is located in California.  So are all my
other mailboxes.  Please do not send unsolicited bulk e-mail or unsolicited
commercial e-mail to my suespammers.org address or any of my other addresses.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
