getting time from timeserver on a dial-up

   I'm using Debian 3.0r1 stable on a dialup in the UK. I'm using PAP
authentication that CHAT's to the modem then launches pppd and away we go.
What I'd like is for the machine to check and set (if necessary) the system
clock based on the time from one of the many timeservers on the internet.

What package do I need to do this?

How do I make it autorun once pppd has got the ppp connection up and
running (I use the pon script)

Thanks for your help,
