Centos ships with

    server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org
    server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org
    server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org

At least for me all those are properly redirected to local (better said, 
national) servers.
The default config  also includes

    Please consider joining the pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html)

which should be enough food for thought for those inclined to adjust the 
defaults. Therefore I really see no need for direct references in the 
wiki. Why do you think that we need to stop referencing navy.mil (which, 
to be honest, I had forgotten about a loong time ago, as I am using 
national servers exclusively ) and which I do not see as being 
referenced at all ?
