If he only needs the client side there's also the option of installing
nothing and using systemd-timesyncd.

To enable (I believe you need elevated privileges):

 timedatectl set-ntp true 

To check status (no elevated privileges required):

 timedatectl status


That is if the OP's running with systemd.
