Not knowing what country your from but at a U.S. taxpayer I have
no reservations about using time.nist.gov myself, some people
think it's rude to directly query stratum 1 servers.

I typically have 2-3 NTP servers per location behind a load balancer
and my internal servers sync against the load balanced VIP, and the
NTP servers themselves sync against time.nist.gov
