10 seconds is too small, but sometimes one minute might be too small a
timeout, too.  If possible, it may make sense to start ntpd, then
start time-step-tolerant daemons, then use the ntp-wait script to
block until ntpd's first clock sync, then start time-step-sensitive

ntpd doesn't request dnssec verification -- it simply uses the
provided getaddrinfo().  Any tweaking of the resolver to avoid
requiring DNSSEC validation of queries will be outside the ntpd source
