[ntp:questions] Synchronizing contrived time

I'm wishing to setup some arbitrary time on host A, and have host B
synchronize off A. I was considering ntp for that:
1. Set the desired time on A.
2. fire-up ntpd on A, but prevent it from synching against any external
3. use an ntp client (ntpdate?) on B to sync to A's time.

I'm stumbling on:
a. the correct ntpd configuration on A.
b. forcing B to sync off A: it seems the client drops the server,
considering it as an unreliable source.

Guidance appreciated, tnx :)
