There is no "local clock". There is a situation in which ntpd does
nothing but reports that it is synchronized. That is what is called the
"local clock refsource", but ntpd really does not do anything in that
situation. Is that what you want? And why?
And why are messing with stratum 10 sources? Even the pool never gets
that bad. 
Maybe telling us the problem you are trying to solve, rather asking us
to help you impliment your solution to an unkown problem would be more
