About 2 years ago I worked, briefly, with some systems using ntp.  Turns out if the time is off by some small amount (less than a minute IIRC), it simply stops changing the target system's time because it "thinks" something is drastically wrong.

And it doesn't tell you that it's not changing the time, because the drift is beyond it's allowable difference? In a log somewhere.

Sounds reasonable that it won't change time if it's too extreme, but not to notify you? Or pass a parameter to allow changes regardless of amount of difference? That seems odd ...
