We have several Redhat 7.3 (I know, ancient) machines and I run ntpd
(4.1.1) on these machines. After around a couple of weeks to months,
the clock still drifts. A few drift only under +- 1 min, but some up
to + 20 min (with ntpd still running). Do I still need to run
ntptimeset daily or so to make sure the clock drift is small?
