I've tried one serial-USB converter for NTP. The box passed the DCD line,
which was essential to get the PPS signal through. Performance was not as
good as a direct connection, but better than LAN sync alone. See:
I haven't tried an Ethernet connected terminal server - I would hope it
was better than USB, but I don't know.
