There is a cronjob but it seems a little broken.
The Web interface has a "Synchronized Interval" setting which claims
to allow you to set the clock to update every n hours. In reality it
creates a cronjob which will be called at n hours (so at 6am rather
than 4 times a day every 6 hours):
root@links:/etc# crontab -l
00 6 * * * /etc/cron.d/ntpdate
The ntpdate script itself doesn't actually work on mine, it requires
a /etc/timezone which doesn't exist.
Commenting out the line where it tries to execute /etc/timezone seems
to do no harm but then I live in GMT.

Q. Why is top posting bad?
