[ntp:questions] NTP didn't sync time

I have a Solaris system running 5.7 and have initiated xntpd. The next
day the system was unable to be logged into and this was due to /var
being full. Since this system was admin'd by another administrator it
wasn't fixed until 2 days later.

When the /var fs was fixed it was found that the date was 2 days off.
Can /var being full cause ntpd to not keep the clocks in sync ?

Thanks in advance for any help,
