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:

  ntpq -p

from the command prompt.  You should see a list of servers similar to 
those shown here:
