[libvirt-users] guest daemon reading kvmclock - is it not needed or bad idea ?



Hi 
(apologies for the previous post in html - was scrubbed in the list 
digest)

I've dug various posts and articles on host-guest time synchronization.
I could not conclude why it might be better to use ntpd in a guest rather 
than a daemon that reads from kvmclock 
and having NTP running on the host only
(assuming the guest OS is a recent linux and so the clock source is set to 
the paravirtualized kvm PVclock).

any clarifications are welcome, thanks!
