You should be more specific with versions on RHEL (or any RPM based
distribution); do "rpm -q ntp" to get the full NVR.  For example, RHEL
5.2 systems should have ntp-4.2.2p1-8.el5.

In any case, I just checked RHEL 5.2, 5.1, 4.6, and 3.9 systems, and
none show a leap second or a time reset log entry.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
