Bug description:
  Ubuntu 9.04, affects the ntpdate binary package

  Problem: Using dhcp a file ntpdate.dhcp is created but never used.

  By default NTPDATE_USE_NTP_CONF in /etc/default/ntpdate is set to
  "yes". This has the following consequences:

  /usr/sbin/ntpdate-debian parses /etc/default/ntpdate and checks for
  /etc/ntp.conf.dhcp /etc/ntp.conf /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf if
  NTPDATE_USE_NTP_CONF is set to yes.  By default ntpd is not installed
  therefore there is no  /etc/ntp.conf.dhcp /etc/ntp.conf or
  /etc/openntpd/ntpd.conf. ntpdate-debian then defaults to the
  NTPSERVERS set in /etc/default/ntpdate, namely "ntp.ubuntu.com". Only
  if NTPDATE_USE_NTP_CONF is set to "no" there will be a check for
  /etc/default/ntpdate.dhcp and consequently the server supplied by dhcp
  be used.

  I propose to set NTPDATE_USE_NTP_CONF to "no" by default. If ntpd is
  installed, this will override the use of ntpdate and
  /etc/ntpd.conf.dhcp and /etc/default/ntpdate.dhcp will both be created
  by DHCP anyway, therefore both packages will use the DHCP supplied
  servers in any case.
