NTP Question

Hi

I am looking at implementing NTP and have a question regarding
configuration.

Is it possible to have multiple server entries in ntp.conf eg:

server [1st time ref server] prefer Ext NTP ref
server [second time ref server] Ext NTP ref
peer [ip address] Internal server
server 127.127.1.0
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 3

Would this mean that it would contact the 1st server in preference, the
2nd server as a backup incase the 1st service was down, compare time sync
with an internal server and finally fall back to its own clock if all else
failed.

Have I got this right?
