No luck, the /etc/ntp.conf

server time-c.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov
#server time-b.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov
#server time-a.timefreq.bldrdoc.gov
server time.nist.gov
server utcnist.colorado.edu
driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift
#dirfitfile /etc/ntp/drift
authenticate no

still gives 

$ sudo ntpdate -v  
26 Sep 09:14:07 ntpdate[556]: no servers can be used, exiting   

Did you actually mean "dirfitfile"?

Thanks for any help,
Glenn Murray
