Your client software is five years out of date, I suggest you update it.

In your ntd.conf, remove the local clock, and add in three pool server
lines such as:
server 0.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 1.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 2.pool.ntp.org iburst
If your alder NTP complains about the "iburst", remove it.
Be sure that your PC is fairly near correct time in the BIOS, and that the
time zone is correct. Retry NTP.
Please note that I run FreeBSD and Windows, not Linux, so the above advice
may not be correct in its detail.
