NTP server - internet time

Hi,

I have set up our PDC emulator to obtain time from a 2 Strata NTP on the internet.
1. How can I check that the time is actually being correlated with the server specified?
2. Can you suggest good, robust and free-access NTP servers in the UK or around the world? I'm looking for something solid, unlikely to wind down unexpectedly (university or such).

Thanks in advance,
Skielve
