here we go. The point is, the very same time server (ptbtime1.ptb.de)  
works with a different server of mine. Here there is a "*" in front of  
the ptbtime1.ptb.de. The is the mentioned server and i  
only put it as timeserver in my problem server so that i can be sure  
its not a firewall thing or something....

asterisk:~# ntpq -p
remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset   
========================================================================   2 u    8   64  377    0.323  2502675  
ptbtime1.ptb.de .PTB.            1 u  776   64    0   31.324   
2492286   0.000
