No, he's not.  The regional time servers are also using round robin DNS - 
it's just a smaller pool than  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).
