Bug Description

The ntp (client) service file installed by the centos 7 'ntp' package is named
'ntpd' (note the d), but cloud-init's cc_ntp module identifies that
'service_name' as 'ntp'.

See below on centos 7. For centos 8, there is no 'ntp' package that I see,
it seems to have been replaced by chrony.

[root@cent71 ~]# rpm -ql ntp | grep systemd
[root@cent71 ~]# systemctl status ntp.service
Unit ntp.service could not be found.
[root@cent71 ~]# systemctl cat ntp.service
No files found for ntp.service.
[root@cent71 ~]# systemctl cat ntpd.service
# /usr/lib/systemd/system/ntpd.service
Description=Network Time Service
After=syslog.target ntpdate.service sntp.service

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/ntpd -u ntp:ntp $OPTIONS
