Can you give any examples of systems which need to follow
UTC to sub-second accuracy (running to their own little time-
zone not being good enough), have a clock stable enough to
do so and yet are not connected by any mechanism which could
potentially provide leap-second information?

Presumably there are a few but I find them hard to imagine.
