OmniSync (see
http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Main/ExternalTimeRelatedLinks#C) can
use any http/https server as a time source for NTP. OmniSync is able
to poll a variety of time sources ncluding the daytime service (port
13 tcp/udp), time (port 37 tcp/udp), SNTS, ICMP, SNMP, precision time
protocol (PTP - IEEE 1588), (S)NTP via a socks5 proxy server, http and
https (both also via proxy server).

The HTTP Time Protocol (see
http://www.vervest.org/fiki/bin/view/HTP/WebHome) is an HTTP equivalent
of ntpdate.
