Brad--  Based on your experience, would you recommend the multi-system ntp pools for most
small users? For example, Debian now defaults to this in /etc/ntp.conf:

server 0.debian.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic
server 1.debian.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic
server 2.debian.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic
server 3.debian.pool.ntp.org iburst dynamic 

This should eliminate the single host failure, but what are the drawbacks? Is there a
certain network size that needs a local ntp server?  --Don
