[ntp:questions] set server to a non utc time by hand

This is probably not exactly what you want, but perhaps the idea will help.
In the class java.time.Clock documentation, the authors show users how to
inject a version of the Clock class into their program that will dispense
any time needed for debugging purposes. In other words, within a Java
program one version of the clock can be used for debugging and another for
regular time in a production environment.
BTW, NTPD at least used to have a simulator mode that it could be started
in. I am not sure if that mode is still supported, nor do I know how to use
it. You could ask on this list if the simulator mode still exists and if
documentation exists for it.

I'm not aware of anything available at the moment, but what you describe is
exactly what I have planned for NTPv5, using the General Timestamp API,
which supports multiple timescales.
Are you doing this for fun?
