If (for example) the battery on a motherboard fails, the BIOS clock  
will fail and get assigned some default time value upon a system  
reboot, which'll result in system times which are very far off until  
NTP corrects them.

Yes, approximately-- when your server is listed in the global pool,  
there will be a significant spike of traffic.  My long-term average  
(data collected for longer than a year) is about 8 KB/s...load spikes  
of 2-3 times that appear to be normal....
