It's kind of what I intuitively expected.
I'm a tad reluctant to tell the clients to use the entire fleet of local
NTP servers, albeit they are of similar quality. These 3 clients are
members of a DB cluster and it's more important to keep them in sync
with each other, rather than in sync with some abstract "true time". So,
if some local NTP servers start wondering off and fracture the cluster
time-wise, that's bad. Hence the tendency to keep the config tight and
Are there better approaches?
