:Use ntpd for that as well. It's the default behaviour when started via rc.

:I changed the rpcbind script to depend on ntpd, which is correct behaviour.

    I mean, could we support the same original RC variables for specifying h
    the remote host to pull the date from and then have the ntpd script
    deal with it ? 

    The separation of the two functions (initial data sync and ongoing 
    correction) is important from an rc.conf perspective.
