Re: ntpdate issue ....

I like my LAN boxen to reflect time slightly fast, i.e. slightly ahead of local time (just like I have all my clocks set), so I munge around w/ ntpdate & adjtime to effect that. I do in fact run ntpd, as a server for the rest of the LAN, serving up my locally adjusted (slightly fast) time. I have been doing this w/ the incumbent LAN-time server for several years now w/ no issues, although that box has gotten a bit unreliable lately, hence my interest in moving to a newer box for LAN-time service.

Why not just create a custom time-zone with the unusual offset? Then you wouldn't need any local ntp servers at all.
