Solaris 9

I have configured the Solaris9 as NTP client in which Solaris9 is syncing the time with a windows2008 R2 Server which is runing fine. Now I want that the xntpd service should start at startup. I did this via a script. Kindly correct if I did any thing wrong:

1.)Made a file under the run level in which my solaris9 boots as defaults.(I verified my default run level is 5 via the command who -r)

#cd /etc/rc3.d/

2.) Add the below command in the created file
# vi /etc/rc3.d/
/etc/init.d/xntpd start

3.) Verify that the root user has the correct permission

#ls -la
