One comment - why not use the pool servers, as suggested?  Replace your 
four lines with:

   pool  de.pool.ntp.org  minpoll 6 maxpoll 7  iburst

You may find that some of the public servers you list may be overloaded, 
or come and go from time to time - the "pool" directive takes care of 
vanishing and overloaded servers.
