I converted physical machine to virtual one, where there is NTPd service.
ESX host is running several guest OS included this NTP server.
Can it be this
one the problem ? Virtualization ? I'd like to know if ntpd adjusts only OS
time or it adjust hardware clock too.
In latter case if it adjusted hardwrae
clock it shuld modify hardware clock directly on ESX server (where there are
running 0 virtual machine) ?!

You reference ESX
host or guest OS ?
Guest OS (where ntpd is running) does other jobs
has 20 runningl virtual machines.
