I need to an '-s' flag to the execution of openntpd's rc script:

The problems I'm having are multiple. First, the program doesn't offer
any logging, and running it with the "do not daemonize" switch with
# /usr/local/sbin/ntpd -d 2>&1 > logfile
yields no output.
Then, I'm not sure I understand everything I'm reading in rc.subr(8), but
from trial error, I've discovered that modifying the script's "command"
variable doesn't work, nor does adding the usual "scriptname_flags"
directive to /etc/rc.conf.
Comments, questions and complaints all welcomed.
at the top of the script and run the output to a file as you were doing. I
would add a path to the logfile though and don't worry about the daemon like:
/usr/local/sbin/ntpd start 2>&1 >/tmp/logfile
Then you can kill it off and see what the startup looked like in the logfile.
