I heard at one time that you should only use stratum 1 servers if you
are a server for other time services. Thus, a company that was only
synching their internal servers and workstations should use stratum 2
servers to sync against. These stratum 2 servers might be synching from
the stratum 1 servers. I could be wrong but that is how I remember it.
Stratum 2 servers are usually very reliable from my experience...and
don't vary from the stratum 1 servers much. RFC-1305 describes
everything about NTP you could ever want to know.
