See http://www.kaska.demon.co.uk/  We use "k9", which listens (as an
NT service) for NTP broadcasts on our LAN.  "tardis", from the same
source, is configurable to do almost anything you want, including
broadcasting on the subnet it's on and querying an NTP server somewhere

Both very stable and very reasonable.  I've been using them for years.
