When building ntp for use within an image produced from OpenEmbedded there is an important concern with regard to setting the default server(s) used for time synchronisation.
You must absolutely not use the default pool.ntp.org zone names as the default configuration in your application or appliance.
Once you have gone through the process of setting up / obtaining appropriate server address(es) - refer to the pool.ntp.org vendor info page - you can use these in your OE configuration. To do this, use a bbappend for the ntp recipe in your own layer providing ntp.conf and/or ntpdate.default with the appropriate servers set within.
