It looks like an interesting tool which probably solves a lot of my troubles
with inaccurate clocks.

One thing I'm currently missing is a short howto to combine ptp and ntp. Is
it OK when I use dommands like this or do I shoot myself into the feets?

naster# ntpd
master# ptpd -t -p
slaves# ptpd -g
