Ok it's a normal situation because your proxy is an http proxy.

I don't think it's possible use your proxy server for ntp traffic.
You should configure proxy as a timeserver (n-1) that give to your LAN
pc ntp traffic information (timeservers n).
If your proxy can communicate with Internet on port 123 (ntp port),
and you have access to your proxy, you have only to insert in your
ntp.conf file the timeserver ip address.
I think it should work.
