Hi all,

  setting up ntpd, I find that its default location for the drift file
is /etc/ntp.drift.

but 'man hier' does not offer any serious evidence (should it be

So, what's the canonical way to place this file? (And no, I do _not_
want to know at this time whether anal-retentive is spelt with or
without a hyphen. I will post that question in a separate thread as need
arises :-)
