If you read requirement 10.4  more carefully,  you will find that it Does
require that time
be synchronized from an INDUSTRY ACCEPTED  external  time source.

The GPS reference clock, a radio timecode receiver, receiving NIST or USNO,

Microsoft's time source  (time.windows.com),
Redhat's time source,  various univerisities and other public time servers
listed on NTP.org,

the NIST time servers   listed here:
http://tf.nist.gov/tf-cgi/servers.cgi

Are among the INDUSTRY ACCEPTED external time sources.


This is not an exhaustive enumeration of industry-accepted external time
sources.
