Help save the endangered time servers

Help save the endangered time servers: “To fight this problem of unnecessary load on stratum 1, and to
make it easier for people to make their systems well-behaved, in
2003 Adrain von Bidder created the all-volunteer NTP Pool project
(http://www.pool.ntp.org).
The pool is a set of freely usable time servers. When a client machine
tries to sync to pool.ntp.org, that machine is referred to one of the
pool servers, round-robin style. This helps distribute the loads to
different servers in the pool.”

And people looked at me strange when I asked what the local NTP server was when I started here. Heh.
