Here it is:
$ ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2006-11-11 22:55 /bin/sh -> bash
# /etc/crontab: system-wide crontab
# Unlike any other crontab you don't have to run the `crontab'
# command to install the new version when you edit this file.
# This file also has a username field, that none of the other crontabs do.
# m h dom mon dow user command
