Np sign of "pacemaker".

The drift file is being maintained.
ozzie:~ dave$ cat /var/db/ntp.drift
Dunno how good that is.
I don't seem to be running "pacemaker", and I've never turned it off
because I've yet to understand how "launchd" works (I'm a traditional Unix
bod, still coming to grips with the idiosyncrasies of the Mac).
This box is as bog-standard as possible.
Does this mean that my clock is not being synchronised at all, and just
happens to be more or less accurate, after having bedded down for 5 years?
