Can you please stop yelling and ranting at users every day and instead just
post something useful?

If it's a generated unit, it's still a unit.

Unfortunately, ntpdate is soon-to-be-removed
<http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Dev/DeprecatingNtpdate>, and the official
docs say "use ntpd -g instead".

The website now says, "If you have services that need stable time before
they begin, at this point run ntp-wait, and if it returns "success" it is
safe to start your time-sensitive services."
