If the command "date" shows UTC time, then the time has to be set also
using UTC. But that command allows displaying and setting the time in any

If, as for the OP, it shows UTC and you set it to local time, as is, the
display will seem correct at first glance, ie the "number" will be
correct, but the computer says it is still UTC.

I mean, if it 18:00 local, and it displays: "18:00 UTC", the time is
incorrect, even being the number correct. Thus, when ntpdate runs it
displays "wrong" - being in fact correct, but with the wrong timezone.

Ie, the OP problem is only the TZ.
