For a continually-running system, you want ntpd which continually
adjusts the clock, rather than rather than ntpdate which corrects on

Gently skewing it often is preferable to time-dependent apps than
massively jumping it occasionally.

	apt-get install ntp-simple
will install and configure ntpd to use pool.ntp.org for you.
