If you want to earn your time-nut merit badge, you have to measure it.
The Ethernet on the Raspberry Pi is on the USB bus. That adds about a 1/2 ms
If you are using ntpd, there is a fudge factor that lets you correct for any
offset. (and another one that lets you use the other edge, but I think the
Pi doesn't capture it)
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
