I don't know about other people, but out of the box I get sub 20ms
synchronization.  Right now, it is sitting at about 12.5ms:

     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
*xxxxx.yyyyyy.co         2 u  965 1024  377   64.176  -12.570   0.508

My config file is just a simple:

server   # xxxxx.yyyyyyy.com

driftfile /mod/etc/ntp.drift

restrict default notrust nomodify

restrict mask notrust
