[ntp:questions] Ntp not syncing after powerfail of server

Hello together,

I want to synchronise a local network and there is no uplink to the 
outside world.
So I have one dedicated ntp server and all other devices are client of 
this server.
Now if there is a powerfail, there is no guarantee that the server has 
finished the boot
before the clients have. In this case the time will not be synced.

Is anybody aware of options taking account to this? Does anyone know 
or howtos for further reading? Am I doing a mistake or do I have my 
clients missconfigured?

Best regards,
    M. Giertzsch
