Enable NTP service by default
I am perplexed that ntp service, though installed, does not run on new system by default.
Shortly after installation in VirtualBox guest, time is off by 1-2 seconds compared to my host (where NTP service is on).
Surely there's a reason it's off by default?

Note that you'll probably need to sign up for a Vendor-specific DNS name if you intend to ship a pre-configured NTP configuration in OpenIndiana. See the NTP pool vendor page for information: https://www.ntppool.org/en/vendors.html
We did this for SmartOS (
N.smartos.pool.ntp.org) quite some time ago and I recall it being pretty easy to do.
