That also turns off ntpd so your system clock will be drifting.

Why do you say that?

It's the NTP pool.  Looks normal to me.

The initial error message is telling you that DNS didn't work.  I don't know 
why.  Perhaps ntpd got started before your network connection was working?  It 
should try again later.  What does ntpq -p show?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
