Many operating systems seem to maintain some metadata for each file.
This may, and often does, include the creation date-time and/or the
modification date-time. If such metadata is available, ntpd could make
use of it to ensure that stale frequency data is not used or, if it is
used, is taken with a grain or two of salt!
