[ntp:questions] xntpd fails aix 5.3

Hi, I was asked to look into a problem with our time servers. Both of
them p520s, both running AIX 5.3 and the version for xntp is "xntpdc
version=3.4y". My ntp.conf file as follows:

driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
tracefile /etc/ntp.trace
server time.nist.gov prefer

One server starts up fine, the other gives an error and closes right
away. Here is the error from the /var/adm/daemon.log file:
Feb 4 15:09:52 vantsmsvr01 daemon:notice xntpd893098: 3.4y
Feb 4 15:09:52 vantsmsvr01 daemon:err|error xntpd893098: tickadj or
tick unknown, exiting

So, anyone have any ideas? I don't know what it is.
