Thanks to everyone for the replies, so basically would you say that
with a permanent internet connection I should forget using GPS time to
set the PC clock and just use Meinberg or NTP (which is what I am
currently using and seems to work just fine)?
That would be fine, but if you are interested make yourself a stratum-1
server based on, for example, a Raspberry Pi card. Then if the Internet
/does/ go down, you'll still keep time.
BTW: you refer to "GPS time". Not my area of expertise, but GPS time and
UTC aren't the same - GPS time doesn't use leap-seconds, for example, so
it's many seconds off from NTP.
