Why you need to do this?
Your system is not fully operationl in the time you try to run ntpdate.
Just edit your /etc/ntp.conf to connect to some time servers. Per example 
mine is:

-su-2.05b# cat /etc/ntp.conf 
server ntp2.usno.navy.mil
server tock.usno.navy.mil
server tick.usno.navy.mil
server ntp.colby.edu
server navobs1.oar.net
server gnomon.cc.columbia.edu
server tick.gatech.edu
server ntp0.mcs.anl.gov

statistics loopstats clockstats
statsdir /var/log/ntpd
filegen loopstats enable
filegen clockstats enable
logfile /var/log/ntpd/ntpd.log
driftfile /var/db/ntp.drift
tinker panic 0

I have a "ntpdate -b server" rule in my rc.conf before the ntpd daemon
starts up. I get error msgs that the time server cannot be found.
Is named run before or after ntpdate?
Should I change the rule in something like "ntpdate -b ip" ?
What is the rule of thumb?
