I can't start NTP service, so the time of the machine is wrong.

Mar 14 11:36:25 ntpd[27956]: receive: Unexpected origin timestamp 0xe2174e4d.523af1e4 does not match aorg 0000000000.00000000 from server@66.228.58.20 xmt 0xe2172

Maybe your ntp service isn't loading because your server time is wrong. Try this: stop the service and start it again with the "-qg" options.

ntpd -qg

After that, start ntp again and see if this solve your problem. Keep watching it for a few days; if it gets unsync again, you may have a more complex problem.
