For DHCP adresses you can go with either.
Try NetworkManager first by disabling the network service with
# chkconfig network off
and then rebooting.
# service NetworkManager status
should tell you NetworkManager is running
# service network status
should tell you network is not running.
Then wait a few minutes and do ( it takes ntpd a few minutes to synchronise )
# /usr/sbin/ntpq -p
If you see one of the time servers with an * in front of it then ntpd is
working and synchronised to that server.
Hope this helps,
