3.6 and ntpd



Hi there.

I have installed a recent-ish snapshot of 3.6 (I preordered on the
first day they allowed me to,  but as I am in Australia I still
haven't recieved my cd's!!  }:'<   ) and decided that rather than
isntalling the ntp port I would take advantage of the new native ntpd.

I have it starting on boot,  but it doesn't seem to be syncing as I
expect with its designated server.

I have set the time to be way wrong (september sometime) and then
rebooted it to see how it would cope.  The logs show  it has started
and it seems to be syncing,  but it doesn't seem to want to change the
clock much....  example output as below:

Sep 21 02:41:56 bleh ntpd[23625]: peer 172.30.126.253 now valid
Sep 21 02:42:41 bleh ntpd[10577]: adjusting local clock by 1463853.393689s

Sep 21 03:07:11 bleh ntpd[10577]: adjusting local clock by 1463859.230453s


So...

It is trying,  but failing...?  Is this a rights issue,  or perhaps a
bug?  I have pretty much not done anything but set it up as suggested
in the man pages.

Can I set up several single servers, btw?  There is no suggestion that
I can do so.

Any help would be appreciated. 

TIA
