The closest equivalent under Linux-based systems like Red Hat would be
LXC, OpenVZ or vservers, not KVM. LXC being the newest option and the
only one in the mainline kernel.

I haven't explored a solution to this problem further but LXC on Linux
or Zones on SunOS is one way to partition the machine further while
still avoiding virtualization, possibly useful with NTPd. The
disclaimer being that I haven't tried NTPd inside either of them,
always running it on the "hypervisor" on Linux or the global zone on
Solaris.
