No, he's not. The regional time servers are also using round robin DNS -
it's just a smaller pool than pool.ntp.org. I would think if "oceania" is
your region, the latency in getting to many of the large servers might
interfere with getting a reliable time setting (though I know the ntp
protocol tries very hard to take care of that).
