That's fine but it doesn't address the original problem: he doesn't want

These are LXC containers without the appropriate capabilities to
change the clock or to access other hardware. The clock *is* in
sync, but this is out of reach for freeipa.

Probably you agree that running ntpd is not sufficient for Kerberos.
You have to watch it using ntpq -p to verify that it is connected to
some peers and that the time is actually in sync with these peers.

I don't see any reason why ipactl refuses to start the other services,
if ntpd failed to start. There is no indication that the clock is
*not* in sync within Kerberos' thresholds.
