So what benefit is that $100K extra stratum gaining you?  It has to be 
more than just splitting the UDP/IP path to the lower stratum servers in 
twain.  But it's not reliability, because if your router goes down it 
still takes your NTP server with it.  So what is it?  Do you perhaps 
synchronize everything with that machine directly, without the usual 
Windows Time Service hierarchy in between?
