Bug description:
  This is a feature request.

  When solving a problem or in a rush, I don't necessarily remember
  everything from a man page, or even think to read it.  This is what
  happened with ntpdate(8)

  $ ntpdate
  11 Dec 20:08:12 ntpdate[13930]: no servers can be used, exiting

  Of course, I should have used sudo.  And it's documented.  But as I
  pointed out that doesn't help much when in a hurry or stressed.  My
  bad, so I usually wouldn't mention it.  But the fix is so simple I
  hope it appeals to you.

  -> test the permissions and if they are missing, make that message

  11 Dec 20:08:12 ntpdate[13930]: insufficient permissions (suggestion:
  use sudo)
