I occasionally look at the machines and manually do
date --set   with dsh. That way you know when you are 
using the network bandwidth for setting up your clock :)

With clock skews sometimes you will have problems with 
compiling programs with make, and debugging problems 
(try asking a question: when did that happen? and it would be 
difficult with a wrong clock).
