Also if you just need a high level of syncronization between the time on
all your hosts you can just deploy one standalone ntp server, sync it
against public time sources and get everything synced against that. its
probably a 95% solution to most people's timeing needs.
If I recall correctly, NTP assumes that latency = RTT/2. You might
make it work well for his application *if* you set up your tree so that
your paths are each one hop, or at least symmetric over your network.
