client for setting system time from NTP servers (deprecated)

NTP, the Network Time Protocol, is used to keep computer clocks accurate by synchronizing them over the Internet or a local network, or by following an accurate hardware receiver that interprets GPS, DCF-77, NIST or similar time signals.

ntpdate is deprecated. Please use sntp instead for manual or scripted NTP queries/syncs.

Historically this package also includes hooks for ifupdown and dhclient. These will be migrated to sntp in the future. If the full NTP daemon from the package "ntp" is installed, this package is not necessary and may cause unwanted behaviour.
