Yes, but if you are asking about ntp network

of the three clients possible: ntp, chrony, or systemd-timesyncd.service.
You don't have to install ntpd if it wasn't installed, you have to check
the configuration of what was already installed.
I just covered this in another note. Chrony is installed and running.
I didn't install it, so I guess it's part of the basic install.
I'll uninstall ntp, as I don't need both. Is one better than the other?
I don't know. I have always used ntp, but some say that chrony is better
because ntp has not received as much care recently, it needs an overhaul
or something. So apparently chronny is the default now.
I know nothing about the systemd client. I tried it once, and it seemed
to use more memory than chronny, so I discarded it. But some one
commented that perhaps I was not considering that part of that memory
was shared libraries.
