I posted something similar on -questions but had no reponse.
Could someone tell me if this is a bug?  Ntpdate won't set the date
when the current date is ahead but will set the date when it's behind.
I've noticed this on 4.1 and -current from this past weekend.  (I'm
not talking about the 'send: Socket...' problem).
