Hi ,

On my target the date time in linux is not getting updated as per
The NTP server date. The update of date  and sync between NTP server and NTP client on the target happens 
Correctly when the NTP server is made up and then the ntp client is made up.
If I make the NTP server down and then make the NTP client up , then again make the NTP server up the sync between NTP server
And NTP client on my target fails. The date does not get updated. Could you please look the below logs and suggest.
I see that in the not working condition the time reset gets negative value.
