This bug is a duplicate of #553237 - you probably have some BIOS settings enabled that interfere with ntp and adjtimex.
Please read the comments #11 and #12 for a solution. :)

Bug description:
Binary package hint: adjtimex

Hi!

A few days ago, I installed adjtimex and the installation/configuration routine reported a syntax error. 
I still find the syntax error in the boot.log:

/etc/default/adjtimex: 8: Syntax error: ")" unexpected^M


This is how /etc/default/adjtimex looks like:

#  /etc/default/adjtimex - configuration file for adjtimex(8)
#
#  you may adjust these values manually or by calling /usr/sbin/adjtimexconfig
#
#  This file is sourced by /etc/init.d/adjtimex
#
TICK=to
FREQ=override).

greetings
