Sounds like a reachability problem as it's very improbable that four
different pool servers will be down at once.  You might want to pick a
sub pool that's close to use (e.g. us.pool.ntp.org) but that won't
help this problem.   My guess is a firewall issue at your end (either
packets are not getting out or the reply is not getting back in).
