Why do you need ntp?

There are many reasons, such as:

To be a member of a windows active directory, you need precise time
(compared to the AD controller). That is a big part of how permissions
in AD are maintained. A few minutes difference between the client and AD
controller are enough to make authentication fail.

There are also a lot of things when the time of a transaction is important. For example, imagine a 911 call center. Or a stock trading system etc. Not to mention not missing a show on TV!!! ;-)
