.STEP. means that a connection is being established, an attempt to
connect. If it doesn't change to something different within a few
minutes it means that NTP can't connect.
By the way, you might care to look at the "peer" option on the Web page
I previously referenced - NTP will drop unresponsive servers and try to
replace them by "good" ones.
