The Meinberg package is based in NTP 4.2.4, and mau not support the
"preempt" keyword. Try the following in your ntp.conf file:
server 0.us.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 1.us.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 2.us.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 3.us.pool.ntp.org iburst
and then restart NTP using the Services Manager (in Administrative tools).
Please report the output from running:
from the command prompt. You should see a list of servers similar to
those shown here:
