Stratum 1 myth, use closer server network wise instead ! Imprimer

There is a myth that prevails in the ntp community; it is better to connect to low stratum (e.g. stratum 1) servers in order to get more precise time. This is false quite often. Reasons to connect to busy stratum 1 server like the US Naval Observatory ones we hear are :

  • It is more reliable
  • It gives more accurate time, it's the USNO!
  • I distribute time to many clients so I feel OK to connect to many stratum 1 servers
  • Worse, some connect to many stratum 1 servers because they figure that by doing an average, ntpd will keep more precise time !

In fact, it is more important to connect to close by servers network wise that do the same than to connect to stratum 1 servers to keep your clock as accurate as possible.
