Chuck gave you the "A" answer.  The short-cut answer, at least in 10.6, 

System Preferences -> "Date & Time"

UNcheck "Set date and time automatically".

Your Mac will now stop infecting, er, injecting time.apple.com into your 
config file.

I'm actually impressed, being fairly new to the Mac, that they're using 
NTP, instead of some Apple created utility, to set the time.

And remember:
