These days, even production servers are frequently shut down
off-hours. Things like VMware's Dynamic Power Management
(http://www.vmware.com/products/vi/vc/drs.html#c61984) will only
become more popular in the future.

Suggesting that everyone waste a lot of energy and money to work
around a design limitation of ntpd is rather silly.
