Choosing the first four servers is usually pretty straightforward:

But beyond that, I'm honestly rather curious what server selections
are a good idea. A first thought would be an adjacent country, but
maybe there is a benefit to picking things outside of the pool.ntp.org
selection entirely?

I see that Jared used *.fedora.pool.ntp.org -- I wonder if there was a
specific reason for that or if my questions are even worth thinking
about at all :-).

Happy to hear thoughts.
