I needed both services *and* resolv.conf.
They're (currently ...) not copied in the rc.d script
(maybe a soft link is enough ?)

It looks like the behaviour of ntpd in NetBSD has
changed since August 2013. It now does chroot()
earlier and needs stuff in /var/chroot/ntpd/etc
to help with name resolving which I didn't need
nearly 6 months ago.
