They are walking away from each other;
 If you referenced _everything_ together they may walk away from UTC,
  but they should walk away together, instead of drifting apart.

At extreme risk of sounding like a broken record, I'd try something like:

#  Start ntpd with -g, the -g will prevent a panic stop if the time needs to be steped when started
# ntp.conf for ALL (Clients and/or Servers)
tos cohort 1 orphan 11
restrict default limited kod nomodify notrap
restrict source nomodify
keys "/etc/ntp.keys" # e.g. contains: 123 M YOUR_MD5_KEY
trustedkey 123
manycastclient key 123 preempt
multicastclient key 123 preempt
server iburst key 123       # If you address the server by name append preempt
server iburst key 123
pool pool.ntp.org preempt                # Won't hurt anything if the internet can't be reached
