Possibly it can. I've been using tardis when the FreeBSD box was running
xntpd, and it worked very well. However, it doesn't seem like it can
sync to timed.
% timed -F `hostname`
on the Unix host, none of the options on tardis seem to let it sync.
Tardis can be found at http://www.kaska.demon.co.uk/.
% sockstat | grep time
root timed 64832 3 udp *.525 *.*
shows port 37 doesn't seem to be involved anywhere.
If you want to imagine the future, imagine a tennis shoe stamping
on a penguin's face forever.
