I have this in /etc/cron.daily/time_set to keep display and hardware clock in
sync once a day:


# set the hardware clock every day to avoid the problem of
# a hard shutdown messing up the time beyond what ntp can fix
# easily. Drop this in /etc/cron.daily

/usr/sbin/ntpdate -vs otc1.psu.edu ntp0.cornell.edu time.nist.gov clock.sgi.com
