Not in this one. (see attachment)
This was fixed after the systemd tip you gave me.

What is the difference here?
One can use /etc/systemd/system/ntpd.service.d/whatever.conf but that
requires a bit of systemd knowledge.
/etc/sysconfig/ntpd has been there for ages and people might know this
I guess this is transitionary.
The project ships an ntpd.service without reference to /etc/sysconfig/ntpd
