The server time is off even though NTP is configured and enabled.
TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS :
Use the ntpdc -p command to check the current status of ntpd.
# ntpdc -p
remote local st poll reach delay offset disp
=LOCAL(0) 127.0.0.1 10 64 377 0.00000 0.000000 0.03032
*mail.melancthon 10.162.110.36 2 64 377 0.07680 0.013330 0.06358
=22.214.171.124 10.162.110.36 2 64 377 0.07994 0.013961 0.06413
Each line is a different reference point. The one that begins with a '*' is the current reference point and the server that will be synced with. The offset column is in seconds. If one server shows an offset of -360.000, it means that server thinks your time is set 5 minutes too fast.
You want to confirm that one of the servers is selected as a reference point that is *not* the LOCAL server. Also, confirm that the offset from whatever reference server is selected shows an offset of near 0.
=== ADDITIONAL TROUBLESHOOTING ===
Modify the /etc/ntp.conf file manually and add the following line the end (if it doesn't already exist). This will print ntpd status to the log file location.
Additionally, iburst can be enabled for each NTP server. Edit the /etc/ntp.conf and add "iburst" to the end of each. This will send a burst a packets if the initial request failed. It prevents NTP from giving up on a valid NTP server and choosing a bad reference server such as LOCAL.
server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org iburst
For these additional steps modifying the configuration file, ntpd must be restarted.
# /etc/init.d/ntpd restart
