Description of problem: 
The ntpd.service fails to start from systemd on a fresh boot. Using NetworkManager to activate the network connections. 

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

How reproducible:
Performing a fresh boot of a machine, the NetworkManager.service and the NetworkManager-wait-online.service both complete. The ntpdate.service completes, but the ntpd.service does not.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. reboot
2. ps -e | grep ntpd ( fails nothing found )
3. systemctl status ntpd.service
Actual results:
systemctl status ntpd.service 
ntpd.service - Network Time Service
          Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service; enabled)
          Active: inactive (dead)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/ntpd.service

Expected results:
systemctl status ntpd.service 
ntpd.service - Network Time Service
          Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service; enabled)
          Active: active (running) since Thu, 07 Jun 2012 18:30:01 -0600; 47min ago
        Main PID: 2788 (ntpd)
          CGroup: name=systemd:/system/ntpd.service
                  └ 2788 /usr/sbin/ntpd -u ntp:ntp -g

Additional info:
It seems that there could be a race from the NetworkManager completion and the actual IP address assignment for NTPD to use?

Make sure that the following systemd target/services are *enabled* :



With this, all is well in NTP land after a system reboot.
