Yes, NTP is one of the services provided by the school servers.
Ideally, a laptop's NTP server would be determined by a protocol
similar to the one used for internet portal and DNS server ---
identifying the "closest" server in the mesh. In any case, network
propagation time is taken into account by the NTP (although I believe
Hal is far more knowledgable than I in such matters...)
Anybody on the XO side know if NTP is part of the build yet ?
