'server ntp'. That's _all_.

It assumes that you have a working internal server that has a name
(probably an alias) 'ntp' in DNS. This configuration file is then for
your internal clients.

Adding the iburst flag is a good idea. Adding a line for the drift
file is a good idea. Adding more servers is a good idea. Adding
restrictions is a good idea... once you understand them.
