Just like ntpdate or any of the other cron based solutions proposed in
this thread, this does not train the clock. So although rdate slews the
clock, it doesn't train it to become more accurate over time. NTP does
all this out of the box - and you get multiple server resiliency from
the NTP Pool.

(Do you really need the -c flag to rdate? My systems don't.)
