That will help. Any particular ntp setting to look at for this?

My ntpdate (NetBSD 6.0) does not have -4 option. Still trying these
settings did not improve ntpdate time. Could it be a network issue? I
tried running ntpdate repeatedly (switching ntpd off after boot up). The
time it took varied from 6 to 13 seconds.

At boot time, though it takes even larger. I also noticed that my wifi LED
on the laptop steadies (indicating established connection) just after the
"setting date via ntp" message comes. May be network is not fully ready
when ntpdate runs?
