It seems you are saying that with the current mirror software, there is
a guaranteed (even just a) few seconds a day when this error will occur.

That means the software should be improved yet further to eliminate this
error completely!

I mean how do banks or any big company do things? How could there be
even a few seconds a day when this could happen.

So we found a weak point in the algorithm?
