To clarify; we haven't proven this either mathematically not in a laboratory (looking at actual data transmissions). Also, it's the jitter accuracy we're concerned with. We have simply assumed that the jitter of two independent servers (exchanging timestamps) over a very short cable is an approximation of jitter accuracy.

As you say; if the resolution is 8 ns, the accuracy is of course worse than 8 ns. So far, we have however assumed the accuracy to be within the same order of magnitude.--
