Description of problem:
When trying to reduce network load from NTP I tried to increase the poll interval from the default 64s to 256s following the instructions in ntpd(1), but it failed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit /etc/ntp.conf adding "tinker minpoll 256"
2. /sbin/service ntpd restart
3. tail /var/log/messages
Actual Results: Apr 2 18:34:04 bandsman ntpd: configure: keyword "minpoll" unknown, line ignored
Expected Results: Minpoll should have been increased
The tinker minpoll command is not supported since ntp-4.2.0, so it was an
inconsistency in the man page. Fixed in rawhide. Use the minpoll option in
server command instead.
