You can certainly have multiple time servers specified with Windows

Yes you can have multiple time servers, but only one active at a time.
With NTP your client polls a number of diverse servers.  Routes can
flap, servers can go wacko, but your time stays solid.

The canonical *NIX ntp client supports multiple active servers, if
that's what you're talking about.

No idea about Windows, though.
