Quite possibly because you're reading in the wrong place. You don't
give us much to go on. It would be a good start if you could show us
the actual configuration file and ntpq output.

For the record - that by itself won't probably enable others to solve
your problem. But it wouldn't be the first time that carefully laying
out the evidence lets you spot the error, and it's a base for the next
