I am running RHEL4u5 with ntp-4.2.0. I have seen some instances where my clients can access our NTP server, but they will not sync to it. Instead the client chooses LOCAL as the preferred peer. I have found several posts on this, but no resolution. Any ideas?

# uname -r

# cat /etc/ntp.conf
restrict default ignore
broadcastdelay  0.008
authenticate no
fudge stratum 10
driftfile /etc/ntp/ntp.drift
restrict ntp1 nomodify notrap 
server   ntp1                 
restrict ntp2 nomodify notrap 
server   ntp2
