You want to enable the Network Time Protocol; see "man ntpd".  You can do so via 
/stand/sysinstall or enabling NTP in /etc/rc.conf:

4-sec% grep ntp /etc/defaults/rc.conf
ntpdate_enable="NO"             # Run ntpdate to sync time on boot (or NO).
ntpdate_program="/usr/sbin/ntpdate"     # path to ntpdate, if you want a 
different one.
ntpdate_flags="-b"              # Flags to ntpdate (if enabled).
xntpd_enable="NO"               # Run ntpd Network Time Protocol (or NO).
xntpd_program="/usr/sbin/ntpd"  # path to ntpd, if you want a different one.
xntpd_flags="-p /var/run/"      # Flags to ntpd (if enabled).
