Description (partial)

   <CmdBold>MDS-Switch(config)# ntp server <CmdArg>timeServer</CmdArg>
   Cannot resolve the domain name.

   This can be seen if an "ip host" entry is removed from the configuration and
   then the system is rebooted.  What that does is remove information that is
   needed to allow the NTP to use DNS correctly.
   Name lookup will still work using the ping command regardless of being or not
   being in this state.
