In /usr/sbin there is probably the program netdate. I don't think it
is a full NTP utility, but it's good for getting periodic syncs with a
The only public time base I know of is tock.unso.navy.mil. It is the
time server at the US Naval Observatory's Directorate of Time. It
should be fairly accurate.
If you put "/usr/sbin/netdate tock.usno.navy.mil" in a daily cron file,
or in your network startup scripts (whichever makes the most sense),
then you should have a controllable amount of drift.
