Thanks, Rob.  I wonder whether this is a change from their earlier 
suggestions?  I see that they now do suggest this as one route (as well as 
providing their own time synchronisation program as another option).  Are 
the recommendations they make on page 18, in the paragraph: "Using NTP in 
Linux and Other Guests"  sensible ones for today's NTP?


As I've noted before, using Windows as a host you might want to tie the 
timekeeping rather more closely to a local reference with the appropriate 
minpoll and maxpoll values, and find a good server on the LAN to use.
