Well, I'm kinda stumped.  I would have thought that the ntp daemon would have 
checked the time sources every so often and kept itself in time, adjusting 
the drift file accordingly.   However, it appears that the ntpd that comes 
with Kubuntu is merely for other machines to sync with it, and it doesn't 
check other time sources. 

I'm still trying to figure out how to make it check the time sources I have 
setup in the /etc/ntp.conf file.
