Thanks the following and anyone I may have missed.

Darren Dunham is right...
His initial guess is that...

1) it's not finding the timeserver line in sysidcfg or
2) it can't talk to the timeserver listed.

Normally that gets set to 'localhost', so #2 is pretty rare.
Yes, I did change the timeserver in the sysidcfg file to my boot server ip 
address which caused the problem.   I have changed it back to localhost.  
Everything works great.

Thank again,
