[ntp:questions] ntpd not synchronizing

Hi,
        I'm not sure what's going on here.  I was previously in the ntp
server pool but had to leave the pool.  Since I changed my configuration, my
ntp server hasn't synchronized to any ntp servers.  My firewall is open and
allowing ntp through.  I can use ntpdate to query a server that it's
currently trying to synchronize to and get data back.  Here's the ntpq
output.

Here's my ntp.conf

        Any idea what could be happening here?
