ASA 5505: How to use a host instead of IP address for a NTP server?

Instead of using a IP address I would like to use a host address that points to a NTP pool.

An example would be:

ntp server 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org

Can this be done on the ASA series?

That won't work. On the ASA (as of version 8.4.4.1) you can only specify an IP-address or a hostname which is resolvable through a loal name-statement.
