I wouldn't rely on anything from Microsoft.  At best they are intended

You haven't made a valid case for using stratum one servers.  Start with 
the official list of stratum 2 ones, or use the pool, as others have 

However, first, if in an organisation, try:

ntp.yourdomain, ntp1.yourdomain, ntp2.yourdomain....

Next, if you have a competent ISP, try:

ntp.yourisp, ntp1.yourisp, ntp2.yourisp.....

ISP's often don't announce these, because their marketing people think 
it too boring and too scary for the average customer.
