appliance techpreview ntp: get

Get the NTP configuration status. If you run the 'timesync.get' command, you can retrieve the current time synchronization method (NTP- or VMware Tools-based). The 'ntp' command always returns the NTP server information, even when the time synchronization mode is not set to NTP. If the time synchronization mode is not NTP-based, the NTP server status is displayed as down.
