comment Setting up a local stratum 2 NTP server
The time source doesn't really matter, we're not after 100% accurate time. What we do want is that all the machines are in sync with each other, even if that means their times are 10+ minutes off the actual time. So we are using a random machine on the network as a master time source - i.e. just its internal clock. Which we know and accept is unreliable, but as long as things sync it's OK for us. In the real deployed system we will be syncing to a time source on another system that we have no control over, which may or may not be more accurate.

comment Setting up a local stratum 2 NTP server
Could it be that because Moon is a Windows XP Pro x64 machine using the default W32Time NTP service which is actually Simple NTP (SNTP), that RackCard23 doesn't see it as a proper NTP server, so will never set its stratum to anything other than 16?
