I thought timedatectl was the mechanism for interactive-adjustment of 
time zones, date, and time.

If you don't actually use the command anywhere, I can't see how it will 
affect ntpd.
    Do things because you should, not just because you can.

I'm not sure in what way or how it affects NTP clock discipline so I was hoping somebody here could give some insight. Do I need to remove this from my Pi NTP install?
