Set NTP to log to its own file

Open the /etc/sysconfig/ntp file, and find the OPTIONS directive.

Inside the quotes of that directive, add the following: “-l /var/log/ntp.log”

The final product should look like this:
OPTIONS=”-l /var/log/ntp.log”

This will cause the NTP daemon to write to the /var/log/ntp.log file instead of syslog.
