Cisco routers aren't the ideal NTP servers. I suggest syncing your routers against a reliable internet NTP server. For more information on NTP, please refer to the documentation:

Edison's right. Synchronise your router(s) with a authorized time server based on your geographical location. If you are in England, don't synchronize with a time server in China, for example.

Whoopsie. True. But you can use the same (S)NTP servers as NTP.
