[Samba] Time Sync

I'm not sure this particular AD is acting properly as a time service.

The socket "/usr/local/samba/var/lib/ntp_signd/socket" exists with
proper permissions but I see a lot of time sync errors in my clients.

This case being that the Samba AD is running in a LXC and the
container itself doesn't need ntpd running as its time is always the
same as the host's time (which is running ntpd).

Does the Samba4 AD actually need ntpd running in the same container as
itself in order to be a time service?
