Hi there,

Plusnet do have their own ntp server and its address is ntp.plus.net
Other ones I favour are ntp0.ja.net and ntp1.ja.net

While being nosey I noticed that plusnet's ntp server is actually the dns servers as well, I wonder if thats had anything to do with the BTw problem pages people have been seeing...

Oh, I forgot to mention, I don't use the inbuilt windows time service to keep my clocks in synch, I use dimension4 on my XP machine, and the FreeBSD ntpd server on my servers.

They do exist but they are not official ime servers.

They are the ones I would recommend you use for windows time updates or any other software/system that needs time sync.

The problem was a configuration issue on the BT centrals and nothing to do with DNS.
