I mean to say that if I am node A and I know what the clock is on  
nodes B, C and D then it doesn't matter if our clocks aren't perfectly  
synchronized by NTP. I will know the skew and once node D splits off  
and rejoins, I'll be able to compare the timestamp on my transactions  
vs those on node D using that skew.
