Abstract

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is widely deployed in the Internet to synchronize computer clocks to each other and to international standards via telephone modem, radio and satellite. The protocols and algorithms have evolved over more than a decade to produce the present NTP Version 3 specification and implementations. Most of the estimated deployment of 100 000 NTP servers and clients enjoy synchronization to within a few tens of milliseconds in the Internet of today.This paper describes specific ...
