If you have friends running Linux/Fedora exchange NTP privileges.

First look at how ntpd is started for you.

In general you will find that the initial connection using ntpdate
times out for various normal reasons.  As a result the return status
is an error.

If you check back +15 min later things will be fine when ntpd has had time
to make some connections.

Note that /etc/init.d/ntpd first starts ntpdate then ntpd.  It is not
uncommon for ntpdate to fail in the early stages of booting a system
for a list of reasons...

Do, find a ntp time service local to you.
Based on the mail headers, perhaps  ntp.univ-nantes.fr 

or look here... http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/clock2b.html

    # FR ntp.obspm.fr
    Location: BNM-SYRTE, Observatoire de Paris, Paris, France

If you have friends running Linux/Fedora exchange NTP privileges with each other!
