I have a setup where my Pi is connected to power and to my router, and I then set up a connection with my laptop through SSH (a good setup for saving space, if you don't have a lot).
I fired up my Pi just now and noticed I could access the time, and it was correct.
So I'm wondering where this time infomation comes from? Presumably somehow through the SSH from the laptop, but I didn't think SSH did this, and the Pi is four minutes in front of the laptop's system time.

Is the Pi's time coming through SSH and four minutes being taken off?
