The dockstar doesn't have an RTC to keep costs down. If you're running Debian Squeeze (and you probably should be) then you can make the following tweak to /etc/init.d/ntp to use ntpdate (which you should also install) to set the time before running ntp.
case $1 in
if [ -x /usr/sbin/ntpdate-debian ]; then
log_daemon_msg "Setting system clock with ntpdate" "ntpdate-debian"
log_daemon_msg "Starting NTP server" "ntpd"
Install ntp and ntpdate and insert the given if..fi block after start) and before the log_daemon_msg line for starting ntpd in the file /etc/init.d/ntp as shown above. Done and done.
