Oops, I see you are using the Australian pool servers.  However, 
0.au.pool.ntp.org didn't answer my ntpq, and 1.au.pool.ntp.org returned 
incomplete data, so I would still check the servers carefully.  They are 
(should be) dynamically allocated, to load balance.  Check network 
connectivity first.  You can add the iburst qualifiers for faster initial 

  server   0.pool.ntp.org   iburst
  server   1.pool.ntp.org   iburst
