That could well be true and would explain things from long ago:-
Esoteric would not be my preferred choice of words for that default
At that time I came to the conclusion that ntp was not working because
of the fairly frequent rebooting, and I used occasional runs (as root)
/usr/sbin/ntpdate -b 0.pool.ntp.org
which was suggested for use at boot time and gives more feedback.
In fc10 I haven't noticed an ntp problem, but with ntp all has clearly
not always been as it seemed.
