Ubuntu updating system time

Today is the DST time, however, I found out that my Ubuntu did not update the time accordingly. (Thank god I checked my cell phone network time, else I would have missed my flight).
Here is how to update system time in ubuntu
$: sudo ntpdate pool.ntp.org
This will update the system time accordingly. you can use any time server you want just replace pool.ntp.org with the server you desire.
