Network Time Protocol (NTP) for RH 7.3

Hi. Has anyone here used NTP to synchronize their times? I'm having some problems with it.. the ntpd is running, but the times are not syncing. On the client station, I added the line server IP_Address to the /etc/ntp.conf file. then turn on the ntpd service with "chkconfig ntpd on" and restarted the computer. I also rebooted the server. The ntpd is running when I do a ps -ef.

I used the command, "ntpq -c peers" to check if it's running correctly, and it prints:

remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
"IP_Address" 16 u 59 64 0 0.000 0.000 4000.00

and ntptrace says:

localhost.localdomain: stratum 16, offset 0.000014, synch distance 0.01534 *Not Synchronized*

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or what else I need to do? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

I think you should probably add a couple of time-servers from your part of the world. Have a look at - they should have the info you need. It helped me when I set ntp up, but now that it works I forgot how exactly I did it.
