You can make it honor them, with a little work.  You have to make a
dhclient.conf file with the appropriate "request" statement to ask
for the "ntp-servers" option.  You also have to make a
dhclient-exit-hooks script to generate the ntp.conf file.  It's a
PITA.  I agree with you that support for this should be standard.
