Comment: add note about running the service in a VRF

...

The 

Scroll Indexterm
primaryntpd
 ntpd daemon running on the switch implements the 
Scroll Indexterm
secondarytime
primaryNTP
NTP protocol. It synchronizes the system time with time servers listed in /etc/ntp.conf. The ntpd daemon is started at boot by default. See man ntpd(8) for ntpd details. You can check this site for an explanation of the output.

Note

If you intend to run this service within a VRF, including the management VRF, follow these steps for configuring the service.

By default, /etc/ntp.conf contains some default time servers. You can specify the NTP server or servers you want to use with NCLU; include the iburst option to increase the sync speed.
