I would like to know if ntpd would use the driftfile specified in /etc/
ntp.conf file if it is run periodically using crontab with -q option
as below:

/usr/sbin/ntpd -u ntp:ntp -p /var/run/ntpd.pid -g -q -L eth0

I do not find any drift file being created at the specified location.

Thanks and Regards,
