time with another reference time source. This package includes ntpd
(a daemon which continuously adjusts system time) and utilities used
to query and configure the ntpd daemon.
Perl scripts are in the ntp-perl package, ntpdate is in the ntpdate
package and sntp is in the sntp package. The documentation in HTML
format is in the ntp-doc package.
