NTP verification with Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3

Does cDOT 8.3 "compares internal information system clocks at least every 24 hours with an authoritive time server"? 


I've referenced and the ntpdate command seems to work fine, yet when I review the /mroot/etc/mlog/messages* files, I see no "kernel time sync enabled" entries or any other indications that ntp has queried the defined time servers for synchronization.
