Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 821820
ntpd can't be fully disabled because it does systemd wrong
Last modified: 2012-10-23 11:39:23 EDT
This link is included in the ntp RPM:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Apr 29 22:10 /lib/systemd/system/systemd-timedated-ntp.target.wants/ntpd.service -> ../ntpd.service
It shouldn't be. Rather, there should be the line in /lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service in the [Install] section:
This makes it impossible to fully disable ntpd.
See also bug 821813 for a similar problem in chrony.
Let's see if the discussion in bug 821813 results in any alternative solutions.

This seems to be addressed in systemd.
