"offset" and "jitter" reported high values, which is an indication of latency between the client and the NTP servers.
Below is an example of high "offset" and "jitter" values.
# /usr/sbin/ntpq -p remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter ============================================================================== [ntpserver1].s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 3 u 775 1024 377 2.555 +3181.1 35728.0 [ntpserver2].S xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 3 u 786 1024 377 5.272 +2875.1 35848.2
The offset column references the difference between the NTP-server's clock and the server’s clock.
The jitter column refers to the network latency reaching the NTP servers.
