This tells me that you are not connected to an effective and valid
name server at the time
you are starting NTP.

With eth2 I wonder what is dialed in with eth0 and eth1.
A system with multiple interfaces could be routing in
ways that never get connected to anything interesting.

Are you posting from this same host or
from another connection?  If you can email some
things are live.   It may be that some stuff
is not setup at boot time resulting in an error
and later when you get connected NTP has shut down for
want of good services.   If this is the case restart it now
that you are connected...
