Just a second...

A friend of mine is quite interested in accurate time keeping, particular with reference to NTP - a protocol for various time servers to synchronise time. Apparently we got an extra "leap second" added between 31-Dec-2005 and 1-Jan-2006 and he has written a detailed assessment of how the leap second propagated through the NTP network.

The short answer is "not as well as it should have", but I recommend that you look at the article to see the point illustrated graphically.
