I have a number of servers, all of which match their system clocks to a
couple of central time sources that I run.
All, except 1, are within a couple of seconds of the time source. The
oddball is 13 seconds fast.
Even though its running ntpd and is seeing the time sources it still
won't sync. If I stop ntpd and run ntpdate manually then it
acknowledges that it is 13+ secs fast but still refuses to set the
system clock. (the doco says that ntpdate won't update if ntpd is running)
I should point out, though I don't see it as relevant, that this is a
Xen guest server and one of the reference clocks is the Xen host but the
other is independent.
