You're right, 0, so that the server is seen as stratum 1 by the client.

The ntpd html documentation for the local clock explicitly states that
fudge stratum 0 should be used in the case of external discipline.
See http://doc.ntp.org/4.2.4/drivers/driver1.html and earlier versions,
though I see it has been removed from the current ntp-dev doc, which
however still lists 0 as a valid fudge value.
