When configured as a stratum-1 ref-clock, I regularly see much better than
10ms with Windows:
~100-150us on an XP server system:
~500us on an XP interactive system:
~100us on a Windows 2000 server system:
For a Windows XP client system synced over the LAN to these stratum-1
servers I typically see an accuracy of about 1.5ms.
Temperature stability appears to be one limiting factor.
