Time stops for distant observer on Earth because frequency measurement device called "atomic clock" aproaches the event horizon. Atomic clock emits photons to observer on Earth but because of the strong gravitational pull these photons derive from their course and that lowers the frequency you recieve here on Earth.That is called red shift effect.At point the clock reaches the event horizon, the recieving frequency is practically zero.In other words - time stops and you never see the probe or a ship with atomic clock entering the black hole. However if you fly this ship you wont expirience time dilation at all. You will fly "through"(read my thread) the black hole before your mind realises that.As for the mass and gravity, they are proportional. The more the black hole swalows the gravity gets stronger. Dont forget that this concept is based on theory of relativity and could prove to be false.
