Zend_TimeSync is able to receive internet or network time from a time server using the NTP or SNTP protocol. With Zend_TimeSync, Zend Framework is able to act independently from the time settings of the server where it is running.

To be independent from the actual time of the server, Zend_TimeSync works with the difference of the real time which is sent through NTP or SNTP and the internal server's time.


Zend_TimeSync is not able to change the server's time, but it will return a Zend_Date instance from which the difference from the server's time can be worked with.
