I am trying to setup my bsd box as a ntp server.
I basically want all machines on my local network to
sync times with this bsd time server. I start the server
with the command `ntpd -A -l /var/log/ntpd.log`. I verify
that the server is running with ps and `netstat -na | grep udp`,
but when I look in the logs i see the following

ntpd 4.1.0-a Mon Oct 27 14:55:18 GMT 2003 (1)
kernel time discipline status 2040
Un-parsable frequency in /etc/ntp.drift

Any thoughts on what I can do to get this server working.
when i try to sync from another machine on the network
I get the following error: no servers can be used, exiting.



#i am not sure if i need to add anything to this ntp.drift file or not
touch /etc/ntp.drift
touch /etc/ntp.conf

driftfile /etc/ntp.drift
#bsd time server
