Two upstream time servers is the worst possible configuration for
NTP. See section 4.3.3. at

Configure more upstream time servers, at least four, preferably
six or more, and possibly as many as nine. See all of section 4
(above) and <https://ntp.isc.org/bin/view/Support/StartingNTP4>.
Once you correct those problems, it will be easier to determine
if there's something else going wrong.
