It's not the exact same thing, but can't you do
19,43 1 */2 * * /usr/bin/rdate -s ntp1.csx.cam.ac.uk && /sbin/hwclock --systohc --utc
and acheive about the same result?
Also, as I see this, you're running this twice every 48 hours (not
accounting for days with odd numbers of months). But, the second
execution is only 22 minutes after the first. What's the point of that?
