Local NTP server configuration on RHEL 6 Virtual server assistance needed

Greetings all,

I am relatively new to Linux...just taking the RHCSA 124 class...and am trying to work on my first servers.

I have installed a host RHEL 6 OS with just Virtualization.
I created 2 RHEL6 VMs and have been trying to configure one as a NTP server. These are standalone with no internet access.

I have been unsucessfully been trying to configure one of the VMs as the NTP server...but every website solution that I have tried has failed. Every solution I have tried...I still get no suitable server for sync found.

Can anyone assist with the /etc/ntp.conf files...on what needs to be included?? I am using a host system with no ethernet configured..but the VM Manager environment is setup for a default network /24 w/ DHCP disabled.
The VM server is setup with manual ip as, and the client is . Both systems are able to ping each other. This is the first service I am trying to setup after doing the initial there are no DHCP/DNS/etc services configured.

Any help will really be appreciated..thanks
