Using ntpdate will always make the clock jump when it is synchronized, causing small time lapses.

In order to have almost continuous synchronization with drift adjustment you should use ntpd. The configuration is trivial.



You are right about ntpd. But I also prefer the scheduled ntpdate because ntpd is extremely chatty - several messages every few seconds while it tries to keep the time very precise.
