Description Moritz Barsnick 2004-01-06 05:29:52 EST
Description of problem:
ntpdate currently puts its results on stderr. If called with the 
switch "-s", it reports to the system log mechanism. I would like a 
possibility/option to have both - the syslog for reference, and 
stderr to see what happens.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ntpdate my.time.server
2. ntpdate -s my.time.server
3. ntpdate -s -whatever my.time.server
Actual results:
1.  6 Jan 11:28:55 ntpdate[1899]: adjust time server 123.456.789.012 
offset -0.179602 sec
2. [nothing]
3. [not implemented]

Expected results:
1. same as above
2. same as above
3. same as "1."
