Yes.  If you modify NTP so that is does the same thing as PTP then it
will as good as PTP.  That should be obvious.

NTP is modular and it is easy to write a new reference clock driver.
So if I had time stamping network hardware, I'd want an NTP driver for
it and would use it.  But most network hardware lacks the feature.
