NTPD - add to rc.local or write a script

I have noticed that to start some programs at boot there needs to be a script for it. Others can simply be added to the rc.local. I've got ntpd ready to go. I have a ntp.conf file with valid servers, etc. I want to use ntpd to keep my local clock up to date. Should I write a script for it or just add the command to rc.local?
