Danny, thank you for your responses, all of you in this thread as  
well.  I will do my best to reply to each.  Todd answered what I  
needed to know about the comments that were made (Thanks).  In my  
case, that level of auditing is not needed.

I am dealing with time stamps in logs, my clock only every drifts  
backwards in time compared, I can potentially end up with large gaps,  
making log auditing a bit troublesome.

I am only looking to solve that.  Though my original issue, it more  
about why a kernel panic causes ntpdate to fail, which I believe I am  
on track to discover a solution.
