Description Nils Philippsen 2004-09-28 11:04:29 EDT
Description of problem:

s-c-date converts NTP server names to IPs and as such doesn't work for
multi-homes time servers, even more so if the list of IPs may change
regularly (e.g. pool.ntp.org).

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add pool.ntp.org as NTP server
Actual results:

Looking at /etc/ntp.conf, /etc/ntp/step-tickers, s-c-date adds one of
the IPs pool.ntp.org resolves to

Expected results:

s-c-date adds the name of the timeserver which would resolve to a
different one of the "mirrors" on each ntp invocation
