This is just a sample of what is in my /var/log/messages

It looks like ntpd is going off every few minutes. Is this normal? Shouldn't it be a little less frequent? It's just a home box, as long as it's within 5min of the correct time I'm not going to be too worried. Is there a way to control this?
