Let me ask you again: Why are you trying to use it at all? You do not
fall into ANY of the groups  listed in the restrictions list. ntpdate is
also definitely does not meet any of the requirements since you are not
using an ntpd server as required.

You are using something that you shouldn't be using. Please stop using
it. Also review every one of the servers that you are using and make
sure you are meeting any and all restrictions required by the
administrators of those systems.
