It is a bad idea to run ntp on AFS clients. The cache manager synchronizes
the clock with the AFS servers, which should run runntp. I use the following

on the system control machine:

	/usr/afs/bin/runntp -localclock time.uni-freiburg.de
time.uni-freiburg.de is our time server.

On the other servers no parameters are given to the runntp command. See also the
description of runntp in the administrators reference.
