System: NetBSD Warp.RES.CMU.EDU 1.2G NetBSD 1.2G (WARPDRIVE) #0: Sun Oct 19 10:37:19 EDT 1997 woferry@Warp.RES.CMU.EDU:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/WARPDRIVE i386

    The xntpd manpage says little about the ntp.conf parameters, citing
manpages that do not seem to exist under NetBSD.  Is this a problem with my
install, or are these files missing?  Either way, something should be updated,
either the manpage to not mention other manpages, or the nonexistant manpages
should be added (I'd prefer the latter, I don't know what to put in my ntp.conf
at the moment...  =)

     See the following pages for configuration and control options. While
     there is a rich set of options available, the only required option is one
     or more server, peer or broadcast commands described in the Configuration
     Options page. The Notes on Configuring NTP and Setting up a NTP page con-
     tains an extended discussion of these options.

     /etc/ntp.conf      the default name of the configuration file
     /etc/ntp.drift     the default name of the drift file
     /etc/ntp.keys      the default name of the key file
