You tell us nothing except the time is wrong. 
What operating system are you using? 
As stated ntp has nothing to do with time zones. It sets the local clock
to UTC. Under bsd/linux, all trhaslations to local times (including time
zones) are done by the OS, using the information in /etc/localtime
(which is one of the files from /usr/share/zoneinfo). Under Windows I
have no idea, nor under MacOS ( although it may be similar to linux)
