That should greatly reduce the amount of data that it copies during a sync. Granted it will copy more data than a block-level sync, but it will be much less than ...

So if your system clock is slightly fast, the clock will appear to go backwards slightly sometimes. This may confuse some programs, especially make.

There are several implementations for NTP synchronization, ntpd, chrony and systemd-timesyncd, to name a few. Running ntpdate every minute has a lot of drawbacks, for example: time is not adjusted smoothly, so it can jump backwards and/or forwards there is a lot of load on the NTP server you are querying, so please do not implements this "handycraft ...
