Obviously, my ISP is blocking outgoing udp port 123. What, I
want to know is, does ntp.debian.org have another port open
that will redirect to 123. I will have to use iptables NAT

If you think your ISP's blocking it, why not
a) Ask your ISP whether it provides an NTP or simple NTP server?
b) Ask your ISP whether if does block NTP traffic.
