I just noticed that our lon-capa system has lost 17 minutes in system
time since last September! I guess ntp.msu.edu doesn't accept requests
from us. To fix this I replaced in /etc/ntp.conf the line ntp.msu.edu 
with several lines of time servers that work for us. My question is
whether this will fix the problem? I noticed a file
/etc/ntp/step-tickers. What is this file for? It contains the single
line ntp.msu.edu. Should I make the same replacement in this file? Finally, 
will ntp reset time again considering that it was off with that much, 
or should I use rdate to reset time manually the first time?
