About Phone NTP Reference Setup
In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, use the menu path to configure phone NTP references.
If you want to do so, you can configure phone Network Time Protocol (NTP) references in Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to ensure that a phone that is running SIP gets its date and time from the NTP server. If all NTP servers do not respond, the phone that is running SIP uses the date header in the 200 OK response to the REGISTER message for the date and time.
After you add the phone NTP reference to Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration, you must add it to a date/time group. In the date/time group, you prioritize the phone NTP references, starting with the first server that you want the phone to contact.
The date/time group configuration gets specified in the device pool, and the device pool gets specified on the phone page.

After you add a new phone NTP reference to the Cisco Unified Communications Manager database, assign it to a date/time group.
