Why, when setting up ntpd is so easy?

On your router:

# hostname
router.example.com
# cat >/etc/ntp.conf
server 0.pool.ntp.org
server 1.pool.ntp.org
server 2.pool.ntp.org
^D
# cat >>/etc.rc.conf
ntpdate_enable="YES"
ntpd_enable="YES"
^D
# /etc/rc.d/ntpdate start
# /etc/rc.d/ntpd start

On every other machine in your network:

# cat >/etc/ntp.conf
server router.example.com
^D
# cat >>/etc.rc.conf
ntpdate_enable="YES"
ntpd_enable="YES"
^D
# /etc/rc.d/ntpdate start
# /etc/rc.d/ntpd start

Everything else is already taken care of.
