[time-nuts] Need Time Help

I must admit to being rather puzzled at the sub microsecond timing 
requirement as I use ntp to set the W7 clock in my computer and have not 
had any issues. In fact less than one second is OK for the usual two 
minute periods that are required to allow for the Faraday rotation. 
Although I use a GPSDO for a frequency reference I find JT software 
reasonably tolerant of frequency.  As I may be missing something I would 
welcome observations on how important the period timing requirement is, 
you never know I might get more contacts.
