    apple.com is not time.apple.com

    # host time.apple.com
    time.apple.com has address 17.254.0.26
    time.apple.com has address 17.254.0.31
    # host apple.com
    apple.com has address 17.254.3.183
    # host apple.com
    apple.com has address 17.254.3.183

    Yes, that's why I suggested time.apple.com, not apple.com.

    Periodically. By default the interval is between 2^12 seconds (i.e.
    about 68 minutes) and 2^17 seconds (i.e. about 36.4 hours). Network
    time setting uses the standard network time protocol, using (I think)
    FreeBSD's ntpd. The interval is set up in /etc/ntp.conf, and no, I
    don't know how it decides the exact interval to use. Looking at my
    system log shows that I've recently synced up at these dates and times:

    Aug 26 17:39:54
    Aug 26 11:58:17
    Aug 25 14:42:14
    Aug 22 19:24:28
    Aug 22 13:42:55
    Aug 21 18:23:48
    Aug 21 12:42:10

    I haven't looked at startup items, but my last reboot was between the
    two oldest entries on that list, and not close enough to either to
    suggest an automatic sync at boot time.

    Thanks.
