Consider two big networks. Both admins are happy having all there systems'
time in sync. They don't trust other networks but both have neat GPS
clocks. Unfortunately, both clocks are buggy. One is +200ms the other
one -200ms. You have an account at both networks and are allowed to use
their NTP servers. Go figure.
