ntpdate -B should do it (stop ntp first, you'll need to restart it after
ntpdate finished its run). It's a good idea to have ntpdate -b -s on the
initscripts to avoid this kind of problem (during boot up, at least).
ntpdate can be found in the ntpdate debian package. It already provides a
init script, but you must edit /etc/init.d/ntpdate to enable it.
