Its not rocket science!
Select four, five, or seven public NTP servers (or private servers to
which you have access) and list them in your ntp.conf file in the format
illustrated above. Ideally, the servers should be near to you in "net
space"; e.g. they should have short round trip times.
Anything more is largely window dressing! If you deviate from this
simple format, you should know what you are doing and why.
