If everything goes right, WAN latency may be the major delay.  But my ISP may 
be less competent than yours and one of their DNS servers may be down more 
than yours, or more overloaded, or ...

Maybe we should start a project outside of NTP to measure DNS lookup times.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
