[ntp:questions] Best practices for leaf nodes

Can anyone point me to a document that describes best practices for a
leaf node using SNTP to synchronize its local clock?  I am particularly
interested in recommendations regarding how often to poll the server and
how to behave if no answer is received.

Note that I am not interested in using the full NTP protocol and
algorithm - I just want to keep the local clock correct to within a
second or so using as little code as possible.
