We thus have draft-droms-dhc-dhcpv6-default-router-00 that extends
DHCPv6 to do what RA does. And now, we have
draft-bcd-6man-ntp-server-ra-opt-00.txt that extends RA to advertise
the NTP information that is currently done via DHCPv6.

My question is, that which then is the more preferred option for the
operators?

In many environments RA is a catastrophic disaster. Some operators need
to be able to do everything with RA turned off on routers, disabled on
hosts and filtered on switches.
