I just followed the above link. I see ONE feature missing!
ntpdate -Du (I think it's -D) does NOT set the clock, it simply tells
you what it would have done had it been permitted to do so. I suppose
this feature is not essential but I've used it a time or two to find out
how my time agreed, or disagreed, with some other server.
