comment time sync with ntpd
ntpq output from a cloned version of the same system on the same VM; (delay,offset,jitter) = 79.8,3.3,15),(103,1.5,15),(72,8,20),(55,12,17)

(See below) - The ntpq output is hard to format in a comment, but I think the useful part is the (delay,offset,jitter) results - (.189,2.9,.1), 3.6,2.9,.1),

Fighting with the comment editor! - The ntpq output is hard to format in a comment, but I think the useful part is the (delay,offset,jitter) results - (.189,2.9,.1), 3.6,2.9,.1),

I am not sure how to tell if I have the situation you describe with a hypervisor agent for time sync. The ntpq output is (Hard to format in a comment!): alpha:/home/net# ntpq -p -n remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter +71.6.217.53 131.107.13.100 2 u 13 256 377 77.277 -4.492 4.622 *108.71.253.20 .GPS. 1 u 1 256 373 104.012 -14.622 7.761 +74.118.152.85 69.36.224.15 2 u 147 256 277 69.100 -10.436 5.534 -97.107.134.28 128.4.40.12 3 u 223 256 377 38.207 -7.521 5.509

comment time sync with ntpd
Thanks. I think the ntp.conf is ok, since ntpdate works fine manually. There is no ntp.conf file but since I don't seem to have ntpd (which uses it), I don't think the file is used anyway. I wanted some automation which I think ntpd is supposed to provide. (I do have to give ntpdate the server argument, which I would have thought would come from the .conf file.)

It's also odd that two identical (cloned) Debian VMs on the same system have very different clock drifts. One was .4 secs off after 2 days, the other 49 seconds.

Thanks - good pointer. But from the MSoft site they seem to only support SUSE & Red Hat.

As noted above, I already installed ntp, and also ntpdate-debian, and ntp-doc. The lack of automatic synchronization ntpd-style lead to the above question.
