ntp question

I can't set my outside router become a ntp client?

ntp server

#sh ntp status

Clock is unsynchronized.........

#sh ntp associations

address ref clock

~ ...............................

But if I use a linux to become a ntp server,the router can correct receive ntp message!My linux ntp server still use the public ntp server

and it can work well?

How do I let the router received outside public ntp server directory?

Re: ntp question

Thank you !!!!

But I also have a stupit question:

In my lan,I install a ntp server,and the router

can use the command:

ntp server prefer is my ntp server and it can work not include set source interface.

I think maybe they are in the same subnet so can work,but

I have another router in the subnet,it still can work well,

so I think even the router and the ntp server was in different subnet,

it still don't need set source interface,right?

why I don't need set source interface in this case?

and I need set when the ntp is in internet?

I am very confuse,thanks your answer~~
