           Summary: ntpd: should retry on name resolving error
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.23.x
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: Networking
        AssignedTo: unassigned at busybox.net
        ReportedBy: bos at je-eigen-domein.nl

   Estimated Hours: 0.0

Currently ntpd tries to resolve the hostnames in /etc/ntp.conf on startup, and
quits instantly with a "ntpd: bad address '0.pool.ntp.org'" error if any of
them  do not resolve.

I think it would be better if it tried again later, instead of quiting.
In some environments network connectivity is not available instantly at boot 
(e.g. networks that use STP).
