Cut and paste error?  They should all look more like:

server clock2.redhat.com                                                       
server ntp-1.cns.vt.edu                                                        
server ntp-2.cns.vt.edu                                                        
server ntp-3.cns.vt.edu                                                        
server ntp-4.cns.vt.edu

Those domains all resolve, here.  But I don't think you're doing
yourself any favours by referring to a bunch of NTP servers at the same
location.  You want a collection of different servers, else you might
believe a set of servers to be true, that believe themselves to all be
true, when they're not (they might all be referencing themselves).

I picked a collection that come from different locations:

server 0.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 1.pool.ntp.org iburst
server 2.pool.ntp.org iburst

Plus a couple of more local ones, to me (au.pool.ntp.org and my ISP's).
