Timeout for shell script

I have a shell script in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/ that synchronizes the system
clock with time servers via rdate. Sometimes the servers can't be
reached, and the rest of my scripts are blocked. Is there a way to say:
"You have at most 10 seconds to complete this command, or fail"?
