This is a simple patch, but i think could be very useful.

Until now you only can configure ntp on installation or editing
manully ntp.conf file.

Idea is has a field called NTP on PIF class, and when
interface-reconfigure is called add this servers to ntp.conf and
reload ntpd service.

I attach the patch, example to test it:

xe pif-reconfigure-ip uuid=eb6e90c5-55f2-58b2-0748-0b8ff1963587
NTP=es.pool.ntp.org,ru.pool.ntp.org mode=static IP=
gateway= DNS= netmask=

Now you can see on /etc/ntp.conf on bottom:
server es.pool.ntp.org
server ru.pool.ntp.org

and  " ntpq -c peers" shows the new values:

*ntp01.srv.cat     2 u    -   64  377   26.617  -85.780   1.165
+     2 u   12   64  257   88.981  -84.231   1.933

And you can see

#xe pif-param-list uuid=eb6e90c5-55f2-58b2-0748-0b8ff1963587|grep NTP
                        NTP ( RO): es.pool.ntp.org,ru.pool.ntp.org

NTP is not a required parameter to reconfigure a PIF.
