I don't think so, because ntpd requires the local time setting of the
system near by the time from the time-references servers. Otherwise it
simply refuses to work.
So it is required - at least in the current version of ntpd - to set the
time to a value near by at least on time-reference server prior starting
This is done by ntpdate and ntpdate "normaly" extracts the set of
relevant servers from ntp.conf.
For external servers it is no good idea to use ip-addresses there, so
named is required prior starting ntpdate.
As long as the ntpd in the ntpd-version off the NetBSD-distribution does
not do the work of ntpdate during startup by itself, ntpdate is required.
And at least in the case of a broadcast or multicast client I see a
problem for ntpd to do it without additional information, that currently
cannot be extracted from the ntp.conf file.
