There is a dhcp-option, ntp-servers, to set which ntp-server to use. It

startup script or other hack that use this option? - just before I start
my ntp options in /etc/rc.conf look like this:
when my system boots, ntpdate forces the time to syncronize (no matter how far
off it is), and then ntp takes over from there.
I have that too, the point is not that ntpdate doesn't work, but that
configuration via dhcp is not supported. And since dhcp provides the
option, it would be quite neat to support it.
So something like this in rc.conf would be nice:
When set to DHCP the ntpdate script should parse the lease file to find
any available ntp server to use. The hosts option should be fallback if
the dhcp server did not provide a list of available ntp-servers.
Currently such functionality is not supported, and just before I go
ahead and hack something up, it would be nice to know if others have
done the effort.
