NTP is running, but it's not getting time from anywhere.

Looks good. Three servers, all three credible (*/+), all three ramped
up to maxpoll (1024), no samples missed the last 8 times around (377
octal), delay is lousy but the offsets are low. Excellent. Pool servers?
It's working *good*.
You, on the other hand, have Problems. With the cut down config file,
at least NTP is now starting, but you're not getting any traffic even
without the restrictions. Review your firewall again, this time under
the assumption that you do have one.
