You used 2 upstream servers.  They did not agree on the time.

your local ntpd cannot choose which is correct if it cannot find a 'majority
group' that agrees on the time.

This is why I said "Use an odd number of servers" before.  Even that is not
guaranteed to work in all cases, but it will work more often than a small
even number of servers.
