The rdate utility retrieves the date and time from another machine
on your network, using the protocol described in RFC 868.  If you
run rdate as root, it will set your machine's local time to the time
of the machine that you queried.  Note that rdate isn't scrupulously
accurate.  If you are worried about milliseconds, get the ntp
package instead.
You need install xinetd and run 'chkconfig time-udp on' on time server.
