Could somebody please explain me.
why is it necessary to execute the "ntpdate" command only when ntp daemon is stopped , and also the probabale solution to reduce the high offset value.

I'm unable to query against ANY NTP server using the "ntpdate -d NTP_server" command. The NTP server is a validated NTP source and are reachable. iptables are disabled. Any idea why the server is behaving this way?
During a server bootstrap process, I want to explicitly run ntpdate rather than rely on the ntp daemon. However, the clock can be severely skewed at this point in time, which causes an error when executing sudo ntpdate address.of.ntp.server.
