I thought my red hat box was setup as a NTP server BUT...I'm not understanding why it's not synchronized.
ps | aef      .........shows the line below. Is that reflective of a server or client?
ntp       1802     1  0  2008 ?        00:38:54 ntpd -u ntp:ntp -p /var/run/ntpd.pid

cat ./ntp.conf       .....shows...
server now.cis.okstate.edu maxpoll 6     (139.78.135.14 would be it's IP)
server ntp0.mcs.anl.gov maxpoll 6          (140.221.9.6 would be it's IP  )

cat ./ntp/ntpservers    .....shows...
clock.redhat.com                                       (66.187.233.4 would be it's IP)
clock2.redhat.com                                     )apparently dead, no ping reply)

ntpq> pe        ......shows.....(where did it get theses IP's from?)
     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
