ntpd works very well. If you are having a problem with it, there is a configuration problem.

ntpd protocol does not sync every 20 seconds, because that is very inefficient and unnecessary.

ntpd will sync as often as needed to keep your system clock within about 100ms of the clock source. Over time, it creates and maintains a local drift file to locally correct the time, and allow the sync intervals to be extended. Ideally, after a few weeks, it will be many hours or days between syncs.

It's not a simplistic protocol. The documentation is here.
