I'd be pretty suspicious of those "no servers reachable" messages.

Do you have one or several servers configured? You should use as many
as 4 or 5, and <dons flamesuit> avoid the pools because they have
proven to be a single point of failure IMHO. If you use a pool, make sure
you have at least two other clocks named explicitly.

Universities (at least many of them in the US) seem to have time
servers and mega-bandwidth. I use their servers a lot.
