[time-nuts] NTP Time Server Ping Timing Stability

I'm curious about the stability of Ping timing between high quality NTP 
servers.  Is it the case that a histogram will show different times because the 
path may be different between the two servers but the spread for any given path 
would be quite small because of the quality of the timing?

Or if I was pinged would the wander of the satellite in the link show up or is 
my stock PC so crude it swamps the satellite wander? or not sure if those are visible on the net.

Have Fun,
