The most obvious thing would be that your clock is crazy in some way. Is
this a virtual machine of some sort? Could also be a network issue,
since your sources are all remote.

Check your loopstats file, that'll give you frequent updates on the
estimated offset. Looks something like this:

55644 401.825 -0.001462000 1.683 0.001382438 0.152267 10
55644 2520.826 -0.001925000 1.441 0.001303446 0.166212 10
55644 3584.825 -0.000222000 1.440 0.001359719 0.155477 10
55644 5742.824 -0.001613000 1.240 0.001363575 0.161688 10
55644 7877.826 -0.000202000 1.215 0.001369497 0.151509 10
55644 8917.825 -0.000140000 1.214 0.001281234 0.141723 10
...

First column is day (modified Julian day, I believe), second is seconds
since start of day, third is estimated time offset (in seconds). Fourth
is frequency (in ppm). Forget what the rest are (more stats from ntpq
-crv, though).
