primary NTP server to get best performance.  As others have said, if you 
could (a) use the Linux box as your primary NTP server and (b) feed it 
with PPS, you would have a better configuration.

You can even use the low-cost Raspberry Pi as a Linux NTP server, in a 
variety of configurations, as I describe here:
