Windows NTP Server

I have a wierd question. I have a Windows 2008 domain. I edited the registry so the domain controller will get it's time from time.gov & it works great. We have Shoretel VoIP phones. I can set these phones to point to these domain controllers & it will sync perfect...to the second.

My question is, if I had not edited the registry on the domain controllers to point to time.gov, could I still have pointed my IP phones to my Win 2008 DC for NTP?

You could point them to the DC however they would then always have the time on the DC and if it wasn't pointed somewhere like time.gov then everything would get the "drift" that the server gets. That would make sure they all had the same time as each other but not necessarily the correct time.
