This document defines a new ND option, called the NTPS option, that contains the Server location information of Network Time Protocol version 4[draft-ntpv4] or greater. Therefore, hosts can get such information in the same RA message transporting the information of IP address configuration. In this spec, both ND transport mechanisms (i.e., advertisements and solicitations) are considered.
