I built a time server with redhat 7.2 and ntp 4.2.0 and Motorola M12T.
The time server works well.But when I  sync with time.nist.gov ,I found
my time server is about 200ms later .who can tell me why?

[root at gt4 lxh]# ntpdate -q
server, stratum 1, offset 78.759011, delay 0.02599
29 Mar 15:37:32 ntpdate[1090]: step time server offset
78.759011 sec

[root at gt4 lxh]# ntpdate -q time.nist.gov
server, stratum 1, offset 78.958525, delay 0.26364
29 Mar 15:38:24 ntpdate[1092]: step time server offset
78.958525 sec

[root at gt4 lxh]# ntpdate -q clock.isc.org
