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 ?
