When there are two ntp processes, review your /etc/ntp.conf file. There must be an unreachable NTP server

root@linux:~ # ps -ef | grep ntp
root 24639 24476 0 10:22 pts/0 00:00:00 grep ntp
ntp 26152 1 0 Sep11 ? 00:00:06 /usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntp/ntpd.pid -x -g -u ntp:ntp -i /var/lib/ntp -c /etc/ntp.conf
root 26277 26152 0 Sep11 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/ntpd -p /var/run/ntp/ntpd.pid -x -g -u ntp:ntp -i /var/lib/ntp -c /etc/ntp.conf

Review your /etc/ntp.conf file and restart NTP

root@linux:~ # service ntp stop
Shutting down network time protocol daemon (NTPD) done

root@linux:~ # ps -ef | grep ntp
root 24778 24476 0 10:23 pts/0 00:00:00 grep ntp

root@linux:~ # service ntp start
Starting network time protocol daemon (NTPD) done
