By default, dhcpcd will request a list of NTP servers to use from the DHCP 
server. If none are given then dhcpcd does nothing. Otherwise it will 
create /etc/ntpd.conf, and /etc/ntp.conf to work with this information. If 
dhcpcd knows about the init system (it does for NetBSD rc) then it will also 
restart ntp if it had to change the file.

This can be disabled with the -N option.

It currently does similar for NIS also.
