        I have seen two conventions pretty widely used.
I prefer (1) for style reasons, but (2) seems equally sensible.

1) clock.<domain>

Examples: clock.home.net
                clock.nrl.navy.mil
                clock.umd.edu
                clock.cmc.ec.qc.ca
                clock.uregina.ca
                clock.cuhk.edu.hk
                clock.nc.fukuoka-u.ac.jp
                clock.isc.org
                clock.sgi.com
                clock.via.net
                clock.osf.org
                clock.llnl.gov

2) ntp.<domain>

Examples: See http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/clock1.htm
