You are on deb/ubu i take it. You need to edit /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf
and remove ntp-servers from the dhcp request.

Its sily the way they have it. it should be a flag in /etc/default

I was verifying this by using the ntpq -p command. It was using a time server it picked up via DHCP when it was plugged into a completely different network. I had no idea where it was getting this information.
