Netdate takes a list of names of Internet hosts as arguments, selects
the one which supplies the best time, and sets the system time
accordingly.  The invoker must be the super-user for the time to be
set.  Protocol names (either udp or tcp) may be interspersed with the
host names, and determine the protocol which will be used to connect
to the hosts whose names follow, up to the next protocol name or the
end of the arguments.  The default protocol is udp.
These days, "ntpdate" is probably a better choice.
