[ntp:questions] ntpd on Redhat

Whenever I set up a Redhat machine for the first time, when I edit 
ntp.conf and run /etc/init.d/ntpd start or restart, contacting server
fails.  Then I open up the GUI applet from the taskbar, check Use NTP
(without changing whatever shows up in the server scrollbox), then
magically /etc/init.d/ntpd restart is successful.  What does the GUI
applet do that makes it work?

Thanks,
Chris
