    Network Time Synchronization fails

    I have installed the 2018-W06 weekly build (for amd64) of Kali, and when I start it up it gives error messages saying that "Network Time Synchronization" has failed to start.

    I have made a bug report about this. But actually I'm not quite sure that I understand exactly what "Network Time Synchronization" is or (more importantly) why I should need it. What adverse effects (if any), for the purposes of Kali use, might result from my not having it?

    Apologies for my ignorance. I have tried to research this matter online, but can find nothing specifically Kali-related which explains whether Network Time Synchronization is important --- and if so, why.

    Same problem here. Somebody please help. I'm on Kali 2018.1. Here's the output of the command systemctl status systemd-timesyncd:
