The LOCAL line probably shouldn't appear either, as your system appears to be
a leaf node.  Unless you can explain why you have chosen stratum 5 for it
(hint stratum 10 is the usually suggested value when it is useful), you
should definitely delete the local clock from the configuration.

The local clock driver is only useful on servers, and, even then, not
always - I doubt if any of the public stratum 1 or 2 servers have it
