[ntp:questions] NTP configuration problem

Hello
I am trying to configure NTP client on a machine but observing
unusual log.


my ntp.config files read this

driftfile /etc/ntp/drift
restrict ntp1.cs.wisc.edu nomodify ntrap noquery
server ntp1.cs.wisc.edu minpoll 4 maxpoll 4


My drift file reads 0.000
whereas tcpdump is unable to capture any packets

ntpq - p does not list server ntp1.cs.wisc.edu
I am not sure if ntp-client is configured properly on my machine
How will I ensure this

Thanks in advance

this is the output message of ntpd -d. sorry for the spam , but I thought it
may be necessary for troubleshooting
