CentOS 8 no longer ships ntp, it uses chronyd instead. Does the same job, different package.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

There's a small typo in Trevor's reply:
yum install chrony
This is for C7, but I think it is the same for C8:
