This is from a bsd box btw, not Linux.
You really should put a few servers in ntp.conf, pick some geographically
close ones off the udel page referenced. Using more than 1 allows the
program over time to pick the most reliable and to have multiples in the
event of a remote failure. To see how its working, after u
start ntpd, run ntpq, then at that prompt type pe, it'll show you stats on
servers you have. I also specify a drift file, heres my conf and ntpq
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset

then in /etc, I made an ntp dir then used touvh ntp.drift to create an
empty file for the program to use.
