Hello everyone. I hope someone can help me on this one.

I am trying to get my servers to keep time with an external time source.
Background:

3 servers in tree.
Primary server sits behind BM

BM server-
NW5.1sp5 bm3.6.C02
Timesync time Sources ;
Timesync type Secondary
Default time server Type Secondary

Primary server-
NW5.1 sp5

Timesync time sources 129.7.1.66:123;
Timesync type Single
Default time server type Single

2nd server -
NW5.1 sp5
Timesync time Sources ;
Timesync type Secondary
Default time server type Secondary

Problem:
With filters unloaded, NTP poll fails. However, primary server console
screen shows an adjustment is requested then all servers timesync.
Is it just an internal sync at this point?
If it is syncing with the external time server is the message about the
poll relevant?
Followed TID 10020134,10013084 and 10011518 for solutions already.

Any takers?
Thanks
Kevin
