And you did this why? To test ntpd? Why would you do that? ntpd does not
like something else changing the clock from under it. It cannot tell if
that is due to some horrible severe hardware fault, due to the remote
servers going crazy or what. There is a bug in ntpd that means that it
cannot read the mind of the operator of the computer. Noone knows quite
how to fix this bug, so you as the operator must work around it.
