Also consider changing time servers to a one (or three) closer to your geological location. The ones that are listed will get the job done. But closer servers will be much better.
I included the link to the time serves in ntp.conf but here it is http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/NTPPoolServers
Keep in mind these servers aren't the actual servers you will be connected to. The servers will redirect you to random servers in the server pool. You can see what servers you are connected with
in a console. The peer you see with a asterisk (*) will be the one your computer will be syncing with.
To check your progress:
ntpq -c rv | grep stratum
stratum is a level of accuracy. The lowest number is best. Stratum 1 servers are usually connected to a GPS device. You won't be achiving stratum 1. (unless you own a device). Stratum 3 is considered excellent. Though it may take hours to get there. But honestly whats a couple milliseconds for users like us?
In the ntp.conf there are these three lines:
server 127.127.1.0 # local clock
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 10
If you don't have dialup and or your computer isn't a laptop, you may comment them out. Your time will be more accurate. What those line do is set your machine up as a timeserver as well. So on bootup, if there is no internet connection, the fake server will be choosen rather than no server at all. If a server isn't chosen, your computer may not continue the boot process.
Sorry for only giving basics. Ntp IS
rocket science. If you have advanced needs, you should hit the documentation on the ntp website. Some useful info that is actually human readable can be found here http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_NTP
