I don't understand your question. The -g option will make the clock skip to
the server time if it is off by a large amount. We build embedded systems
that are shipped around the world. They include an ntp client that will
synchronize with a server. If the internal clock is way off, NTP simply dies
if -g is not used. With -g the startup does one jump and from there,
continues with clockskew. How does this hamper my resources?
