Yes, but typically PC HW clock does not drift so much.  You could use 
hwclock --systohc (and possibly --utc or --localtime) after letting
the vdr to set the system clock.  I run this as something like
(sleep 60;hwclock...)& before the vdr command in the runvdr script.

Since our vdr gets up every day, the system clock is never too much out
of the right time.
