My two internal servers were my two uplink firewalls, and were pretty
thoroughly monitored.  Had NTP gone insane, I've had heard about it.

Remember that 3 of the 8 peers on each machine were machines,
so the cluster, as a cluster, actually had *nine* external peers, each
machine having 3 in common, and three which were not (each machine was
a DNS resolver, so they didn't share a name cache on "*"
