The correct solution is to use NetworkManagerDispatcher(1) to start ntpd when the connection is made.

Don't modify any system files or rc.local. Just turn ntp off at boot and add a script to /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ that runs "service ntpd start" when an interface is brought up and "service ntpd stop" when it's brought down. Instructions in the man page.

here is my solution that works -- Thanks Matthew!:

sudo mkdir -p /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d

sudo vi /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ntpd

----

#!/bin/sh

interface=$1
state=$2

case $state in
      up) /sbin/service ntpd start;;
      down) /sbin/service ntpd stop;;
      *) ;;
esac

----

sudo chmod 755 /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ntpd


You can see that it can also be tested for interface, so maybe you only want to start ntpd when eth0 starts. What you see here will start and stop ntpd on every interface change.
