The primary reason why  I need NTP is the synchronization of the systems,
not the accuracy of time.

I need to simplify the maintenance of the systems as much as possible.

I would like to know if it is mandatory to use the leap seconds mechanism
and installing the up to date leap file in order to have ntpd working

Thanks for your answers.
