I don't see a NTP server on
 is it restricted to local access?

What happens if you add to your ntp.conf

 server clock.redhat.com iburst
 server 0.rhel.pool.ntp.org iburst preempt
 server 1.rhel.pool.ntp.org iburst preempt
 server 2.rhel.pool.ntp.org iburst preempt
 server tick.qwest.net iburst
 server tock.qwest.net iburst

  does it sync up to those ok?
