How to tell "ntpdate" which server it should use? I tried

I think you have to change the line


in the file


(/etc/ntp.conf belongs to package ntp-server)


P.S. You can use "dpkg -L package" to list all files belonging to a
given package and "dpkg -S filename" to find out which package a certain
file belongs to. This helps figuring out which config file is relevant
if this information is not given in the man pages.

P.P.S. The package dlocate finds out the same things much faster.
