The NTP Home Page maintains a list of stratum 1 and stratum 2 servers at
http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/servers.html - I took a look there
and found the folowing:

   48.ntp.exnet.com (
      Location: ExNet Ltd, London, UK
      Synchronization: NTP secondary (stratum 2), Sun-4/Unix
      Service area: UK/Europe/any
      Access policy: semi-open access, please send message first for access

      Note: Please see our Web page before using. Please use CNAME
      ntp.exnet.com since IP address may well change.

   50.ntp.maths.tcd.ie, ntp.cs.tcd.ie, ntp.tcd.ie
      Location: School of Mathematics, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.
      Synchronization: NTPV3 secondary (stratum 2), Sparc Station 1
      Service Area: Ireland, UK
      Access Policy: open access

      Note: ntp.cs.tcd.ie , ntp.maths.tcd.ie and ntp.tcd.ie peer together
            over local area net, and one or more usually run at stratum 2.
            Its normally sufficient just to pick one machine to peer with.

I didn't spend much time browsing the lists, so you might want to check
them out yourself.  Good luck!

Look at http://www2.exnet.com/NTP.html

Server is s-2 (will be an s-1 server again soon), in London.



1. Using an Internet Server as your NTP server

Hello NTP users,

Busy setting up NTP between two Digital Alpha machines.  One is running
VMS(with tcp ware) the other Digital Unix (3.2D-1).  General consensus
seems to want to make the VMS Alpha machine the time server (It is setup
in a 5 machine VMS cluster - quite reliable)

Advice needed:
If I use one of the Internet Servers recommended for timekeeping such as
bitsy.mit.edu, utcnist.microsoft.com,etc  What will the effect be on my
host(VMS Alpha) which is acting as a client to these Internet servers
(and as a server to other hosts on my local network), if the network
congestion becomes a little heavy and my server cannot connect or
receive ntp packets or data (times out for a few minutes) from those
Internet Servers for a while.  

Also do you know what sort of impact it will in turn have on the clients
of my local host/server (such as the Dig Unix Alpha server)?

What is recommended or better? - To designate Internet servers as time
servers or rather to designate a local host on your network to keep

Promise I will summarize!
Looking forward to your responses

2. pcmcia memory /storage: how much ?

3. NTP server and NTP server backup

4. Game Development Team

5. NT Server as NTP server and AIX box as NTP client

6. wanted: a windows/dos based version of xfig

7. can AIX 5.x pull NTP time from a win2000 server with the NTP server enabled?

8. setting 'initials' variable in w2k logon script

9. Choosing Internet NTP servers

10. 3 or 9 Internet NTP servers?

11. Configuring a stratum 1 server (using ntp w/o being on the Internet).
