To Referee you to a document which will outline for organisational timing-bells seen here (https://sourceforge.net/projects/chronolabs-cooperative/files/Documents/NTP%20Timing-bells/ or on the wiki here: https://sourceforge.net/p/chronolabs-cooperative/wiki/Constructing%20an%20Organisational%20Timing-bell/) sure so this lets me place comment, most people unlike the original timing belling system that ran on port 37 that is now NTP on port 123, most people don’t understand pools.
What NTP.ORG needs to do is have one pool per continent at the maximum of it differential in land mass for placing NTP services that contact it in the pools of the continent the service is running on. This i think you will find including islands is the smooth eight pools and one timeing server that would be specified in /etc/ntp.conf as the following:
pool 0.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 1.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 2.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 3.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 4.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 5.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 6.pool.ntp.org iburst pool 7.pool.ntp.org iburst server ntp.ntp.org
This way it will pool of the continent plus the auxiliary syncopation service that defaults as the calling server.
We operate a timing bell as well at ntp.snails.email; it like the GIMP for shooting ones mouth of over email taking corresponding at a snails pace.
