NTP client should not be configured in zones. One kernel, one clock.
This is also from the FAQ:
Q: Can some non-global zones have different date and/or time settings (i.e. different clocks)?
A: Although different zones can have 'be' in different time zones, each zone gets its date and time clock from the same source. This means that the time zone setting gets applied after the current time data is obtained from the kernel.
If you would like the ability to have different clock sources per zone, please add a call record to RFE 5033497. [August 2005]

Just had a look at the FAQ and found this: Q: Can a zone be an NTP server? A: Because the NTP server software also sets the time clock, which a non-global zone cannot be allowed to do, a zone cannot be an NTP server. (June 2005)What about client? If I don't enable ntp in a non-global zone, is it sufficient to enable it in the global zone? If I do set up a client, I get this: Can't adjust time: Not owner But ntpq -p works fine and shows it is talking. My suggestions are that 1. xntpd should detect that it's in a zone, and either quit squawking or stop trying to set the time, or 2. that it should just exit as quietly as possible--as long as the time gets set somehow. The current 'solution' of letting it sort of run and spew out loads of warnings strikes me as half-baked. Isn't this a bug? What is best practice here?
