ntpdate configuration?


I;m trying to use ntpdate to set my system time. When it's being brought up during the normal system start up it seems it can't resolve the hostname of the server it wants to sync with. If I run it without arguments from the command line I get this:

ntpdate[1742]: no servers can be used, exiting

If I supply an ntp server on the command line, everything is ok.

I'd have to assume it's some sort of configuration problem however I can't seem to be able to find a configuration file for ntpdate. Could someone point it out to me ?

/etc/ntp.conf

Use one of the pool servers from here:
