Thanks Brian  for your input on this matter.  Sure need something right 
now and your input surely looks helpful.

Now - what I have in place right now shows some improvement but I wonder 
if it is right yet.  Here is what ntpq -p gives me:
--------------
Every 1.0s: ntpq -p                                     Tue May  9 
19:42:06 2006
      remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset 
jitter

1.358

-------------------------

How does this look?  I think it actually is working now?? Anyone, please
let me know.

And Brian... I will try the list of servers that you provided. Thanks very 
much for that input..
