I felt like yourself :)

| 20.19.55 xntpd [171] synchronized to <time server>, stratum =2

So it works : synchronized means your clock is or will (after a while) be
to the same time.

| 20.27.00 xntpd [171] synchronized to <time server>, stratum =3

You are synchronized again, so all is well. If not you will have some clear 
failure logged.

| I can't understand the /var/log/ntpstats files (loopstats and peerstats)

They are mainly used to keep a very accurate synchronization. For a simple
and personnal usage, you do not have to log all these files.

| where I should go from here?

I supposed you search xntp web site ?
