Error:- ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found

hi all ,
i hava install NAT server by ---sudo aptitude install ntp.
then update this :-sudo gedit /etc/ntp.conf.

my /etc/ntp.conf file lool like ---
# /etc/ntp.conf, configuration for ntpd; see ntp.conf(5) for help
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift

# Enable this if you want statistics to be logged.
statsdir /var/log/ntpstats/

statistics loopstats peerstats clockstats
filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable
filegen peerstats file peerstats type day enable
filegen clockstats file clockstats type day enable

# You do need to talk to an NTP server or two (or three).


# Access control configuration; see /usr/share/doc/ntp-doc/html/accopt.html for
# details. The web page <>
# might also be helpful.
# Note that "restrict" applies to both servers and clients, so a configuration
# that might be intended to block requests from certain clients could also end
# up blocking replies from your own upstream servers.

# By default, exchange time with everybody, but don't allow configuration.
#restrict -4 default kod notrap nomodify nopeer noquery
#restrict -6 default kod notrap nomodify nopeer noquery
restrict mask nomodify notrap noquery
restrict mask nomodify notrap noquery

# Local users may interrogate the ntp server more closely.
restrict ::1

# Clients from this (example!) subnet have unlimited access, but only if
# cryptographically authenticated.
#restrict mask notrust
restrict mask nomodify notrap

# If you want to provide time to your local subnet, change the next line.
# (Again, the address is an example only.)

# If you want to listen to time broadcasts on your local subnet, de-comment the
# next lines. Please do this only if you trust everybody on the network!
#disable auth

sudo /etc/init.d/ntp restart

--- sudo ntpdate -u
gives error:- 9 Jun 16:45:34 ntpdate[8459]: no server suitable for synchronization found

Can you resolve the name? What does "dig" give you?

I apologize if I am overlooking some aspect of what you are trying to do . . .

Why not just
sudo ntpdate
