ntp problems


I'm running OpenBSD 3.1 and have the xntpd daemon running to set my system time:

root     18013  0.0  0.5   332   580 ??  S<s   28Oct02    1:30.57
/usr/local/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntpd.pid (xntpd)

However, when I check the syncronization using ntpdate, the offset is more than 90 seconds:

$ ntpdate -q
server, stratum 1, offset 99.106836, delay 0.04544
20 Nov 10:54:31 ntpdate[14096]: step time server offset 99.106836 sec

What's more, this discrepancy is growing.

Here's my ntp.conf file:

$ cat /etc/ntp.conf
server prefer

Would someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for your help.
All the best (Adéu-siau),
