Are you running with the configuration from YAST?
Ntp is suppose to have some files that are used to adjust the clock
speed. When you run ntp regularly, it will adjust these files
automatically and the kernel will use these files to set it up properly.
By the way, you can adjust the amount of time that it will look at the
ntp server. It is in the ntp configuration file.
