Apparently the best way to do this is with the xntpd daemon. This is
started with a script in /etc/rc2.d called S74xntpd, which needs a file
in the /etc/inet directory called ntp.conf (this points to the time
server, and without this file the daemon will not start). The necessary
details are in the start script.

Another way to do this is with the rdate command and cron.

Thanks to all!
