It should only really become stratum 1 if the device is a "UTC" atomic
clock or is something like a radio clock synchronised to one.
In particular, if it is in no way synchronised to "UTC", best practice
would be to use the highest stratum number that the network will
tolerate, so that the time cannot leak too far.
"UTC" is in quotes because real UTC is only really known some time after
