ntpq -p host

The 'ntpq -p' command (recommended by the hint) needs to be supplied with the name of the time-server to be used. If you don't supply a hostname (i.e. you just do: 'ntpq -p') then it will use 127.0.0.1 as the time-server. This isn't likely to work.
The standard Apple time server is time.apple.com
So the command to issue to check for ntp problems is:
ntpq -p time.apple.com
