[ntp:questions] ntpd and hw clock

Hello All;

I just wanted to verify that ntpd is NOT attempting to directly set
hardware clock. It just uses system calls such as settimeofday to set
the time to the Kernel and the time has to be sent to rtc, if so
desired, by the Kernel itself or separately using e.g. hwclock.

Thanks.

Wayne
