You can cron something like this from the OS (which uses NTP):
ipmitool sel time set "$(date +'%m/%d/%Y %T')"
Check it with: ipmitool sel time get
You could do that as often as desired, though I don't think it would
need to be more than every day or so. It takes a little time to update
so it could be off by a second or two, but it's good enough for us. It
can also be done remotely if you allow IPMI over LAN.
