	0.pool.ntp.org 1.pool.ntp.org \
	2.pool.ntp.org 3.pool.ntp.org"

Server

The ntpd server is also an ntp-client of upstream servers. Ntpd continuously, and gradually synchronizes the local clock.

/etc/ntp.conf - setting ntpd upstream servers
# Pools for Gentoo users
server 0.pool.ntp.org
server 1.pool.ntp.org
server 2.pool.ntp.org
server 3.pool.ntp.org

# rc-update add ntpd
# rc-update add ntp-client
# rc


Hardware Clock

To write your NTP sync time to the hardware at shutdown, and read hw clock at start.

# echo 'clock_hctosys="YES"' >> /etc/conf.d/hwclock
