Linux doesn't assume out of the box that you *have* Internet access or
any other infrastructure to use. *If* you tell it to install ntpd from a
current repository/distribution (as opposed to a source install), it
will usually come with a config pointing to a pool. In cases where you
*pay* for your Linux installation in the first place, it *might* even be
a pool of servers operated by, and for the purpose of, your Linux
distrib (e.g., RHEL), like Microsoft does with the servers non-AD
Windows installations default to.
