Now, I have ntpd and ntpdate installed on my debian-sarge system. The ntpd
daemon syncs with 126.96.36.199 according to the logs. However, it has not
been keeping my system clock updated. Instead, I used cron to schedule
ntpdate to run periodically to keep my system clock in sync. Shouldn't ntpd
be doing this? I haven't touched the ntpd configuration, so is there
something there that might be wrong?
