The USR8054 802.11g wireless access point router has the wonderful 
capability to synchronize its internal clock via NTP.  If the user does 
not configure the NTP server, it will attempt to find one on its own, 
thereby creating a large number of firewall hits from timeservers 
throughout the world.

As a benefit, this may be an indication that someone had added one to 
your LAN...
