I don't know where to find something like that. I think Sun had one. Google
will probably find it. It's probably somewhat out of date but might be a
good starting point.
There is lots of info at:
You might ask at comp.protocols.time.ntp on usenet. I think it's gatewayed
to a mailing list at ISC.
My quick answers:
Plan A; Get expensive commerical box(es).
There is a list of vendors at the above URL.
Plan B: Build your own NTP servers.
B1: Sync them to external servers.
You want good ones located nearby.
(That's network near, not miles.)
B2: Get your own GPS gizmo.
The Garmin GPS-18 is popular. Under $100 plus some soldering.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
