ntp problem



Hi list,

An ntp Server located in PST Time zone is contacted by an RHEL4 Server
(located in IST time zone) for syncing time.


At ntp server :

#date
Mon Feb 26 03:14:47 PST 2007


RHEL4 Server contacting the above ntp server for time is in IST time
zone.

#rdate: [ntp server dot com]    Mon Feb 26 11:15:08 2007

It seems the "rdate" or "ntpdate" command giving the GMT time.

My questions are
(1) is it necessary to do some local translation of time (different time
zone) for ntp to work for my RHEL4 system? 
(2) or, was the ntp server not understanding the IST time zone which is
5 hours 30 minutes ahead of GMT?

I set a TZ variable with value IST.

Thankyou for your time

TIA
Jose
