I'm sure many do.

My point is that, if one's starting premise is that most systems in the
world *require* second-accurate syncronization, this is simply untrue.

In fact most work perfectly well even when they drift by minutes,
and a significant portion of critical systems do drift by minutes
in practice.

This is orders of magnitude more error than any leap second.
