[ntp:questions] Cisco switches in internal time reference pool

I'm building a pool of internal time servers (which will run in stratum 
2) that will be used for synchronizing time for all other computers in 
the network.
Is it a good idea to include some cisco switches (say two) into the 
pool?  Do they make a reliable time source when used in symmetrical 
active mode using a statement like "ntp peer ntp2.local.net key 42" in IOS?
