  I had tried adding -w, to avoid an error I was getting from ntp later in the 
boot.  As there are other things in the boot process that need network 
connectivity, it seems like -b would be the opposite of what I want.

  I can see now that I'm getting the same failure of ntpdate.  If -b is 
required to make dhcpcd work, but I need -w to make the rest of the boot 
process work, there seems to be an impass.

  Why had you suggested -b -t 0?
