Remove these until you get it working, and then only re-add them if the
system is serving time to downstream systems and you really understand
why you are using them. Leaf systems never need it and most
intermediate ones don't. It can sometimes cause problems on the server
on which is configured.

If the offset smoothly ramps up, you have a broken clock. If it
suddenly jumps, especially if there is fixed interval between jumps, you
have something else trying to discipline the clock, usually a cron job
that copies the time from the RTC.
