Well, you are not listening. someone suggested having two versions
running with one having only the local clock as server. 
But, you have also said that one of them was a critical internal server
of time. As such, as I have said, it is stupid to have that machine
serving the public for all the reasons you stated as to why you wanted
two separate versions running. All of those reasons are far more cogent
for running separate machines. 
And if you do not have the $30 for a raspberry Pi to act as the public
server, then I would advise you to get the internal network up and
running well first, and then go for the public server when you can spare
another machine.
