I bet:

- you are not using "iburst" in your ntp.conf file
- you recently cleanly started ntpd on that box, or
- your box keeps lousy time

Once the box has stabilized you will hit "state 4".

The briefing papers describe what it means to be in the different states.

I would be Happy if somebody pus a summarly of that info on the twiki.
