Okay. ntpdate with no REMOTE_MACHINE_NAME_GOES_HERE gives me
no servers can be used, exiting
I chose a machine in my building and get
adjust time server 192.168.0.5 offset 0.000451 sec
I chose a building outside my building (which I probably can't
get to because of all our stoopid firewalls and got
no server suitable for synchronization found
So I would guess this means that you cannot get to the machine
you are ntpdate'ing against. You showed that it worked when you
did it against ntp.apple.com. I assume that it also works when
you debug it by hand? If so, I would guess that Joris'
suggestion is a good one:

Meaning that ntpdate is using a hostname but resolve the hostname
into an IP... I think... :-)
