I have used NTP mcast for some time, most of my gear sets it's time this way.

I run mcast on the "inside" network, ie customer and internet edge interfaces
don't run it. There is no customer interest in mcast, here. Plus it is allot more to
consider if I let customers join my mcast network. Dr. Mills suggested 
looking at manycast so clients select the closest NTP server (I have 1 strat1
and 3 strat2).
