That's just because I am, for troubleshooting purposes, using the
defaults of

    server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org
    server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org
    server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org

which I will change to a reasonably close stratum 2 once I get my
issues straightened out.

I believe Hal Murray had it right ... I wasn't waiting long enough
after restarting before testing the "service" part.  It's working
now that I left it alone for a few hours.
