Yes, my ISP has that, as well as "official" NTP servers, but at one stage 
they were not well maintained.  In the UK and Europe, I can recommend 
servers at Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester Universities, and that at 
Trinity College, Dublin.  Check the lists for access policies, of course.

Your ISP may call the servers ntp0.isp.com ntp1.isp.com rather than a 
plain "ntp".

BTW: I tend not to trust servers which don't answer an "ntpq -p <server>" 
request, but that's probably just me!
