Hmm, this doesn´t seem to fit to my problem. My current configuration is 
extremely simple:

server              # local clock (LCL)
fudge stratum 10   # LCL is unsynchronized
server ntps1-1.cs.tu-berlin.de
server ptbtime1.ptb.de iburst
server ptbtime2.ptb.de iburst prefer
server ntp1.t-online.de
driftfile /drift/ntp.drift # path for drift file
logfile   /log             # alternate log file

That´s all. I dont´t think there is much to delete and following the 
howto the settings should be enough to get this run. Well, in fact it 
does - but only for some time...

Kind regards,
