Hello Yvan,

Another good reason to have accurate time that's not necessarily dependent on external connectivity is when you have the infrastructure in place for (real time) failover or migrations

Addition: Usually, ntp servers can be told to allow clients to sync with them even without being in sync to whatever configured time source themselves. Todays OS clocks are doing very well in timekeeping, especially when "trained" by NTP for a while, so an internet outage does not immediately cause sudden wrong time on all hosts.

Besides that, it's not so grave to keep an absolute precise time. All nodes in a network agreeing on the *same* time (even if it's wrong a few seconds to the "real" time) is way more important.

:wq! PoC
