Thanks, Colby.  From the first reference I found:

    Settings > General > Date & Time has a "Set Automatically" now
    Settings > Location Services > System Services has a "Setting Time 

and now I'm a happy bunny!  I had looked for this in the iOS 5 info, but 
not found it.  By default it was not set on my iPad2 (upgraded from iOS 4) 
Now only about 0.6 seconds out!
