Does your ntp.conf contain any restrict statements?

If you see this:

	restrict default ignore

You need to add this (so that your ntpd will talk to time.kfki.hu):

Please post the 'ntpq -p' billboard for your system and your ntp.conf
(without comment lines or white-space) if you need further assistance.
