[ntp:questions] Synchronize clocks without a reference clock

Hello everyone,

Consider a cluster of computers on a LAN. These computers have no
acess to a reference clock (no Internet, no GPS, etc).

One could still want to have all their clocks synchronized, even if
this means they are all slowly drifting away from the "real" time.

I've read a FAQ which seems to describe this use case.

All I need to do would be to add these lines:

server		# LCL, local clock
fudge stratum 12	# increase stratum

to my configuration file? Did I understand correctly?
