What is the background process of "network time" in gnome control center (gnome system settings)? Is there a package providing this feature?

/etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate runs and ultimately calls

NTPSERVERS variable defined in
gnome-system-tools is the package provides all this information. This package is a Cross-platform configuration utilities.
