[ntp:questions] NTP topology design question

I remember seeing something about this before, but I can no longer find it, so I'm going to ask here.

I've got a Garmin GPS17HVS driving a HP thin-client and I seem to be getting good results from it.  This setup is sitting in my head office and is currently working very well as I can tell.

Now I'm looking at a next steps - is it wise to setup another ntp server as a peer?  I'm thinking of setting up another server at a geographically remote location (~50ms over the private wan) and having that peer with the existing box.  All critical equipment would be setup with both NTP boxes as their servers.


Thanks in advance,
