Talking NTP question


I'm new to NTP, we have an NTP server called NTPServer, our SUSE server should be in sync with this NTP server, when i run "ntpq -p" on the SUSE server i see the results below. I did some research and i think the (*) menas that this is the server where this SUSE server are synced to. but in the output below i see the (*) is not in front of the "NTPServer".
How can i change that to make sure this SUSE server is synced to the NTPServer?

Thanks for the help in advance

SUSE_Server:/etc # ntpq -p

You don't. If you don't want it to use other servers, then don't include them, or at least only specify backup servers with a lower strata.

Nothing at all to do with programming. please pick your forum more carefully next time. Moved to Linux - Newbie.
