I've never installed ntpdate. I didn't know there was such a thing.

What I'd try is removing ntpdate then install ntp (or is it ntpd? I can't 
recall). If it needs ntpdate it should put it back.

Then what happens is, your system will not immediately show the correct time, 
it will very gradually adjust itself little by little. Unless you reboot it, 
then I think it sets itself correctly right away.
