If you look back in the archives of this newsgroup you will find that I
asked David Mills a similar question, and he gave an answer. I'm not sure
that I completely understood the answer, though.
I now have lines like the following in my ntp.conf file for my stratum-1
server 0.uk.pool.ntp.org minpoll 10
server 1.uk.pool.ntp.org minpoll 10
server 0.nl.pool.ntp.org minpoll 10
As I have three PCs peered fed from different GPS receivers I'm hoping
that the Internet servers are never needed. <G>
