Simple NTP configuration

Having routers that do not have a calendar - I somehow need to make sure my routers keep proper time. I've been pointed to NTP. Routers being used are 36xx and 26xx. What I thought I would do is run ntp master on our central router (point to point network) and have the rest sync with this router. Although this router does not have a calendar - I will know exactly when it reboots, etc - so I can change the time as necessary.

If this is a bad idea - let me know. I'm not a big fan of doing it this way. I'm not a major control freak - but I do want our routers running with some semblance of the correct time.

The way I'm configuring this doesn't appear to be working.

So - if you were me, how would you do this? What is the command syntax?

Appreciate the help.
