        Due to some changes in the startup order of the rc-files
        ntpdate will be started prior named and will fail to solve
        names from ntp.conf.
        insert an external symbolic server name into ntp.conf and you
        will see that ntpdate is not able to solve it.
        I'm not realy shure how to fix it.
        The problem is the dependeny in "kdc" on "ntpdate".
        Only "racoon" depends on "kdc" and nothing depends on "racoon" at the
        moment and "racoon" also coms in front of "SERVERS".
        But at the moment only "named" depend on the "SERVERS" target.
        Now I do not know if named will ever realy depend on "kdc" or "racoon".
        Of cause "named" may depend on some other things that come in front of
        I suggest that replacing the BEFORE: "SERVERS" in "kdc" and "racoon" 
        with BEFORE: "rpcbind" will solve the problem - but I do not use kdc
        and/or racoon at the moment ....
        Perhaps another virtual target should be added in front of "rpcbind"
        - that is the only thing that depends on "named" ...
