Since Stretch Debian/Raspbian uses systemd-timesyncd instead of ntp.
It consists of a service file and an executable.

Google the name to find more information

Try searching the raspbian docs/github for "fake-hwclock".
Attempts to contact me outside of thes forums will be ignored unless signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public enquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters
