I’ll also say that if you’re running NTP with -g beware.

"This option allows the time to be set to any value without restriction”

Game over if someone decided to go after you, you will never sync.  Make sure
systemd won’t just restart your daemon, if you get “invalid” time the process
dies and then you’re off.  Game over, press redo or back. (yay ti99/4a references)
