I haven't been paying too much attention to what you have written re the problem, what result do you get when you try setting the time manually, as root, from the command line? You know, the old

ntpdate -u <IP-address-of-time-server>

It works, of course. That's what I'm doing every time NTP quits.

The problem is that NTP can't keep the system clock disciplined, it strays off as soon as NTP looses the network peers, and not a second or two, but several minutes.

It seems a kernel problem, not an NTP problem.

Your logs says that when NTP looses the network connection,
it is syncing to the CMOS clock.

From another one of your posts:
