[ntp:questions] slow start

Incredibly slow /etc/init.d/ntpd start
(it hangs on boot so I do it manually but it is slow).

The contents of my /etc/ntp.conf are:

server 0.ca.pool.ntp.org
server 1.ca.pool.ntp.org
server 2.ca.pool.ntp.org
server 3.ca.pool.ntp.org

I put some of the debug log file of an /etc/init.d/ntpd/start on

Is it a hardware problem?
The computer clock seems to work fine.

Should I be able to ping all the ntp servers in my /etc/ntp.conf?
I can't.
