I've never used the debugging level, so I can't make much sense of it either.
One obvious question:  your are opening up your firewall to allow ntp?

Perhaps you could send your ntp.conf file, and after starting it wait 15
minutes then send the output of "ntpq -p".

What happens if you tdo "ntpq -p hostname", where hostname is the name
of a ntp host you are trying to sync to?  How about "ntptrace hostname"?
