I'm using ntpdate (with -B option) at cron interval to retrieve time
from my client; someone says ntpdate is deprecated but I think time
offset is usually very little at every each cron interval and with
"adjtime" system call it's more soft to adjust time. (it slowly steers
Only at boot time I start ntpdate -b xxxx
What do you think ?
I thought to use ntpdate so in this way I have no installed service,
CPU load is more free and I have no attack risks from other machines
(I hope !).
