ntpq assoc, followed by ntpq rv for the association number.
Typically the problem is that the local clock has rather narrow error
bounds, and if the remote source disagrees, but also has narrow error
bounds, there is conflict as to which one has the true time. If you
have a legitimate need for a local clock, you should make sure all your
local clocks can be outvoted by real clocks.
