Why to run ntpd on every boot???


I have one question regarding NTP. I undestand that ntpd is used to synchronize you local computer with external time serevr. But why do we need to run it everytime(on every boot) once we have syncronized it for first time? What would cause clock to change once it has been synchronized?

Please advise.

don't your clocks and watches - on the walls, on your desk, on your arm, etc. - start being off after a while? same with computers.
