Bug Description

From http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Support/OrphanMode

  Orphan Mode allows a group of ntpd processes to automonously select a
  leader in the event that all real time sources become unreachable
  (i.e. are inaccessible).

This is important for:

- Continuity of service should routes out to the public Internet (or
  wherever a user's NTP servers reside) go down for more than a few
  minutes.

- Operating a MAAS installation that is deliberately not connected to
  the public Internet and has no other time sources available. In this
  instance we want MAAS's components and deployed nodes to be internally
  consistent with one another.
