Yeah, there are some regularity requirements in some industries that the
server clocks are within 100ms of UTC (or, at least, that's how internal
audit have interpreted the regulations where I work).

Allowing the clock to drift by a second would normally be bad, but I
guess it wouldn't matter on a non-business day.  (Well, non-business
for 95% of the company where this matters - some areas were still open).
