The simplest way I've found is to hit Ctrl-C when you see the service
start to boot. If you have no network connections you can hit Ctrl-C
when you see "starting network interfaces". this will abort the network
start-up and then the ntp start-up will fail automatically. This will
save a lot of time in booting.
If you do need network access, just hit Ctrl-C when you see
"synchronising time..." during boot.
