How do I use NTP to keep my (rather fast) clock in sync?

The following is the ntpd configuration I use on a machine with a bad
internal clock. The "important" line in this case is the "tinker panic 0
stepout 0" which tells ntpd not to "give up" even if the time on the
local machine differs drastically from that of the remote host.
Hope this helps,
# /etc/ntp.conf, configuration for ntpd
tinker panic 0 stepout 0
# ntpd will use syslog() if logfile is not defined
