an fstab question

One of the suggestions for improving the longevity of solid-state drives is
to mount them using the noatime flag which reduces the number of
times that inodes are written to. if I try something like:

UUID=[string] /               ext4 errors=remount-ro 0       1

It works. If I put relatime there, that works but if I use
noatime, the line is flagged as bad.

	The man page for mount shows noatime and relatime so why
does noatime not work?

Many thanks.
