As I already said, if you have a "*" against one of the server lines in 
"ntpq -pn" NTP is basically working correctly.  If you are using the 
"pool" directive you should be seeing several servers listed, and NTP 
will choose the best.  I don't know how many servers there are in the 
"hk" pool - someone will doubtless tell us how to find that out - but 
you may want to include the "asia" (I think it is) pool as well.

Leave the minpoll and maxpoll out of the configuration unless you have 
good reason to play with them.  At least to start with.
