If you already have them listed, there's no real reason to remove
them, as it'll maintain reliability if the timeservers go out.  Of
course, this won't help if your DSL line goes out, which from my
experiance is more often than it's on (I've been with Verizon,
Qwest.net, and DSL-Only on Verizon and Qwest, and all of them suck
hardcore.  Friends don't let friends use DSL.)
