Also, if your clock is too far off it'll never sync. In syslog you'll
see entries like "Adjusting time by 1000 secs", then "Adjusting time by
1002 secs", etc. It'll continue to creep farther off. I'm not sure where
the point is, but if you get your clock within, say, 5 minutes then it
will sync fine if everything else is set up properly. You can use the -s
flag for ntpd to initially set the time (as opposed to adjusting) if
it's off very far.
