doesn't understand broadcastclient

Description of problem:
It's pretty normal for people with more than one machine to have an
ntpd running with broadcastserver and all others with broadcastclient.
However if you try to change the timezone on the client side the
redhat-config-* tool will not let you exit until you have entered an
ntp server (as it "knows" ntp is enabled.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In your opinion, what should the correct behavior be?
If broadcast client is enabled then don't require a hostname.
The other possability is to add a GUI element for broadcast. Ie. a
simple radio button series, one for no ntpd, one for hostname, one for
use broadcast or whatever. But not chaning the GUI is obviously easier.
I plan to revamp the NTP dialog and code anyway, so it should become
[*] Enable Network Time Protocol

< > Enable NTP Broadcast
