problem with ntpdate(8) in current rc order


if a NetBSD system runs its own (resolving) name server there's the
following potential problem: since kdc REQUIREs ntpdate and wants to be
started BEFORE SERVERS, and named REQUIREs SERVERS, ntpdate is started
before named, and thus can't resolve the hostname(s) from /etc/ntp.conf.  

This seems to have been like this since NetBSD 3, but I've never noticed
it.  NetBSD 2 was fine because its kdc did not REQUIRE ntpdate; but
removing that dependency again and having ntpdate REQUIRE named is
probably not the right thing to do...

Any hints about how to fix this problem?
