Grand Evening Simon,

While running some installs today to check some other issues I kept and eye open on the "clock". From what I have seen it seems the good system sets in /etc/sysconfig the "TIMEZONE" value to what one has used in the grand map of the world, not muck pink any more.. *BUT* it's mate there "DEFAULT_TIMEZONE" has been set to Europe/London and I think it's this vale that gives us the NTP servers in the UK. I have switched that to Europe/Berlin and I get the servers and time closer to me.
So SUSE just 'cos the language is EN-UK I think setting both TIMEZONE and DEFAULT_TIMEZONE to the same value at concept time would be more in line with what the user wants. I use Malta 'cos they drive on the correct side of the road and the currency symbol is "€" and they have the same time zone as Berlin and have EN-UK as the language.

The list of NTP servers available is dynamically populated depending on
the time zone selected so if you select Germany as your time zone you'll
see German NTP servers. Since you saw UK ones I'm guessing you had the
UK zone selected.
