Information about the NTP at the UW

This computer is a "stratum 3" NTP (Network Time Protocol) system because it's the third tier from the actual time source. This computer's clock is synchronized with local stratum 1 servers, including one here on the University of Washington campus. The time of the stratum 1 systems is kept precisely in sync with a GPS receiver. The NTP protocol takes network propagation delays into account when synchronizing time.

That said, the time displayed may be up to several seconds slow due to the delay between computing the time of day and actually displaying in your Web browser over the network.
