	"Every critical organization should run at least four
low-stratum servers configured as above, so dependant servers and 
clients can do the same thing.  Each critical server should run NTP
symmetric mode (better yet manycast mode) with each of the other
servers at the same stratum, together with at least one peer at the
same stratume in another trusted organization."

	By this criteria, a stratum 2 mesh of a bunch of top tier
routers or diverse hosts, with external influence, should be okay.
