No. The hardware time and syncing this to UTC is a function of the
system, not the instances.  Why have n ntpd daemons running when one
is sufficent?

I think "independent_wallclock=1" should be the special case, when
someone wants to change the instance's view of UTC.

Personally I've simply removed the ntpdate/ntpd package from my domU
init packages.
