alright, so it does install even without.. anyway, it's a no-brainer to
demote as Recommends so I'll just do that

  freeipa-client has a hard dependency on "ntp" which is not wanted in
  lxd environment

Status in freeipa package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  [Note: the package is called "freeipa-client" but launchpad only lets
  me select "freeipa"]

  The "freeipa-client" package has a hard dependency on "ntp".

  However: when running Ubuntu inside an lxd container, ntpd cannot run:
  the host is responsible for setting the clock, not the container.

  Hence I want to "apt-get remove ntp" from inside the container. But if
  I do so, this forcibly removes the "freeipa-client" package as well,
  because of the dependency. This in turn leaves a whole heap of
  dangling packages - see below - which are vulnerable to being
  accidentally removed.

  Proposal: change to "Recommends: ntp" instead of "Depends: ntp"

  # apt-get remove ntp
