When is the drift file created?
I rebooted and it does not exist, should I wait a while as suggested?
Is there anyway I can tell if my setup is correct?

Here is my log file now:
Feb 25 14:58:26 patriot ntpd[90]: ntpd 4.1.0-a Mon Oct 27 14:55:18 GMT
2003 (1)
Feb 25 14:58:26 patriot ntpd[90]: kernel time discipline status 2040

Thanks,

brian

kill ntpd, delete the drift file and restart.
