adjust_time() in my sntp/timing.c contains:

    if (immediate) {
        errno = 0;
        /*  if (settimeofday(&new,NULL))
            fatal(1,"unable to reset current system time",NULL);*/
    } else {
        errno = 0;
       /* if (adjtime(&adjust,&previous))
            fatal(1,"unable to adjust current system time",NULL);*/

Where the heck did those comment characters come from?  I'm going to
remove them and see what happens.
