RTC precision?

I know that in weeks past, there was a big string on how to get an
accurate timer to deal with times less than one second.  Here's a
trick question - does the hardware keep track of time less than one
second in duration?  A VAX (and I know that a 3B1 is *no* vax :-)
keeps a register that increments every microsecond.  Is there some
sort of hidden register like that on our machine?

Thanks in advance!
