NTP isn't working (details)

I am on RPI2, 14.1, I can not get ntpd to work. I chmodded it, I added "/etc/rc.d/rc.ntpd start &" in my rc.local and my /etc/ntp.conf file looks like this


server iburst
server iburst

driftfile /etc/ntp/drift
logfile /var/log/ntp.log

restrict default noquery nomodify
When I do /etc/rc.d/rc.ntpd status I get "ntpd is running". However if I change status with stop I get "Stopping NTP Daemon line 31:kill (785) - No such process"

I tell it to start again and run "ntpdate -d timeserver" and I get

18 July 11:34:23 ntpdate 4.2.6p5@1.2349-o Wed Oct 16 12:03:52 UTC 2013 (1)

Do you have working DNS? That message implies not.
