[ntp:questions] Initial sync on starting ntpd with 20-21 minute time difference

We have a RH 6.8 server with ntpd installed, but not currently running.

The time on this server is showing around 20-21 minutes ahead.

The server has been restarted and the messages log shows a successful ntpd start, but it is no longer running.

I would like to attempt to manually start the daemon but am concerned that the local time will then 'jump' to the correct time, which may affect applications on the server.

Can anyone confirm that the time will sync gradually?

Many thanks
