FWIW, i've been using both ntpdate (on workstations) AND ntpd (on
servers) under 5.0 RELEASE since it came out in January without a hitch.

Personally, I don't see the harm in leaving ntpdate in since it's
lightweight, super-easy to use and still appropriate (IMHO) for
workstations that don't stay on all the time
