I don't work for Red Hat so you may need to wait for a reply from them to get 
an official answer.  Red Hat at one time did have a list with multiple 
entries.  However, it did not contain everyone's favorite so there were 
constant requires for adding more.  Rather than trying to keep up with this 
unsolvable problem, they appear to have chosen the alternative of just one 
... their own stratus 1 server.  Now this is not really a problem since you 
can plug your own favorite in.  Yoyu can do this at first boot, with the 
system-config-date application (which is what firstboot uses), or by manually 
editing the /etc/ntp.conf file.  For system-config-date, just type in the ip 
or name of the server into the field rather than selecting.
