Accurate time to the millisecond is pretty much 
essential for any network troubleshooting. Say 
you want to diagnose a SIP problem. You collect 
transaction logs from both phones, the VoIP 
gateway, and the PBX. Now you try to merge them 
to derive the sequence of events. You NEED 
millisecond accuracy.

If all logs are sent to a unix server that does 
syslogd the log entries would go into the file
in order no matter what timestamp is on them.
