The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time with another reference time source. The ntp package contains utilities and daemons which will synchronize your computer's time to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) via the NTP protocol and NTP servers. Ntp includes ntpdate (a program for retrieving the date and time from remote machines via a network) and ntpd (a daemon which continuously adjusts system time). ntpdate is a simple NTP client which allows a system's clock to be set to match the time obtained by communicating with one or more servers. ntpdate is optional (but recommended) if you're running an NTP server, because initially setting the system clock to an almost-correct time will help the NTP server synchronize faster. The ntpdate client by itself is useful for occasionally setting the time on machines that are not on the net full-time, such as laptops.
