Add iburst to each of the server lines, that will get quick
synchronization. Do you have a firewall and is it allowing packets
to/from 123/UDP?

What's your O/S and what version on ntpd are you running? ntpq -c rv
will tell you that. Also use ntpq -p to see the list of servers rather
than using ntpdc. Wait 20 minutes before interrogating your server for
synchronization. Also, use dig to make sure that you can find the
servers. These look like they are a mixture of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
so you need to make sure not only that your firewall supports IPv6 but
also your ISP does too. Not all provides know about IPv6!
