As a practical matter, we can assume that production server's time will
be accurate to NTP standards.
In practice, real data lossage events will be quite rare (once every few
years if we're having bad luck). Resulting "restore from backups"
events will rely on backups an average of probably 8 hours old, with
perhaps 48 hours maximum if we have bad luck again. But when those
restores happen, they will happen onto servers where the clocks are
