+ `ntpsec` replaces `ntp` in Fedora 34.

+ `ntpsec` is designed with the highest security standards in mind and its focus is to be a more secure implementation of `ntp`.

+ This change improves the overall security of Fedora, as `ntp` contained a number of vulnerabilities that had been exploited in recent years and were not fixed, nor were fixes considered likely to come soon.

+ `ntpsec` is an open-source, actively maintained, fork of `ntp` and improves on it by removing obsolete code, updating the codebase, and adding additional features.

+ 

+ There are not likely to be any visible effects for Fedora users: `ntpsec` is already almost fully compatible with `ntp` and so existing settings should continue to function for most users.

+ There are very minor functional changes between `ntpsec` and `ntp`, as described https://docs.ntpsec.org/latest/ntpsec.html[here], and so there is the potential for limited problems to occur.

+ If problems do occur, then check system logs from the `ntpd` service and modify `/etc/ntpd/conf` as necessary, see the https://docs.ntpsec.org/latest/[documentation for NTPsec].

+ 

+ The latest version, v1.20, is available in Fedora 34. 

+ See the https://gitlab.com/NTPsec/ntpsec/-/blob/master/NEWS.adoc[NTPsec project news page] for information about the latest version compared to prior releases.

This PR contains the Fedora 34 release notes for #619, ntp replacement (https://pagure.io/fedora-docs/release-notes/issue/619).
