Yes, that's the protocol that network time servers speak. But modern
versions of Mac OS and Windows just let you supply the name of a
server as part of the same control panel where you set the time, and
handle all the details for you. XNTPD is a complete bear to set up -
worth the effort to set up a local time server on your home LAN,
maybe, but total overkill for a time client.
