Hard to tell.
I've got one machine that I run xntpd on as a client, and then I
have my other machines (currently only one) as clients of the
The main machine (tome) on boot starts my ppp connection. However,
ppp races ntpd and ntpd loses. So, I get "no route to host" errors
from ntpd. I don't think ntpd on tome ever syncs up with it's server
in this case.
Therefore, when my other box (ironwood) tries to sync up with tome,
I get the error about no suitable servers found.
So, I really can't comment on ntpd working or not when it can't lock
itself in memory.
