How do you go about setting this up? I would love to have one Mac serving time to all the others, and everything I have read about ntpd suggests that this should be easy enough to configure, but I have never managed to get it to work. Ah well...

Don't know about OS X, but ntpd is dead simple to set up on Linux. Just find an old box, install a simple distribution on it and enjoy your local time server. We do that at my work and, while it doesn't save us a ton of bandwidth, any little bit helps.

Hey, I just realized they finally fixed the problem in Leopard! I can now sync all the computers in the office to one running Leopard. Hmm...this might deserve a hint of its own...
