NTP secure


I'm wondering if the ntp protocol that operates mainly in UDP can be
used on a firewall server (to syncronise logfiles) or if it is too

The only information useable for "security" seems, according to ethereal,
the originate time stamp which means that an attacker has to be very fast
to read this and send an own, faked packet faster than the original asked

What would you recommend as time syncroniser on a firewall?
(No big-company thing that would be worth to buy an DCF77 clock for it's
own, just a fun project...)
