You might be better off using <http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/use.html>

 server 0.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst
 server 1.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst
 server 2.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst
 server 3.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst

If you have at least at least ntp-dev-4.2.5p86
 e.g. Message-ID: <0fd7b5c0-3f34-4dc7-8d2c-fce10cf4a430 at h28g2000yqd.googlegroups.com>

  you can use the pool commands. e.g.

 pool 0.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst
 pool 1.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst
 pool 2.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst
 pool 3.us.pool.ntp.org preempt iburst

Some of those are only supposed to be used with permission,
 by Strat 1 or 2 servers.

e.g. <http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/ntp.html>
All of the following stratum 1 NTP servers are open to
  stratum 2 servers within the same time zone and to others
  by arrangement.
 Individual users should consult the  public list of stratum
  2 servers.

#  tick.usno.navy.mil
Location: Time Service Dept., U.S. Naval Observatory,
 Washington, DC
Synchronization: NTP V4 primary (USNO Master Clock H-masers)
Access Policy: open access for MIL, GOV, and other stratum
 2 servers. Choose only one of tick/tock/ntp2.usno.navy.mil.
