Dave,

Thanks, now we're on the same page.

This means that somebody can use:

 ntpd -qc startup.conf

where startup.conf is, for example, a regular ntp.conf file that adds
"disable ntp" and that will handle this case.

I think this covers all of the behaviors that were asked for in the list of
"I used to do X with ntpdate, how do I do it with ntpd?"

The only other case may be making sure that the clock NEVER steps backwards,
but I'm not sure that ntpd is the correct place to solve that problem.
