The NTP-docs mention that you should not use only one server, but more.
I've added a few others as well. Should ISPs offer multiple servers[1],
should I just use the one my ISP provides, or should I use the servers
from all the ISPs in the country?

[1] My provider, xs4all.nl pretends to have ntp.xs4all.nl, and
ntp2.xs4all.nl. Unfortunately, these names point to the same server.
