NTP Pod Issue

As it stands:

I have an slim ubuntu pod running NTP, it is configured with the default pools. If I run in the pod ntpd -p I get the following:

     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset  jitter
==============================================================================
 0.ubuntu.pool.n .POOL.          16 p    -   64    0    0.000   +0.000   0.000
 1.ubuntu.pool.n .POOL.          16 p    -   64    0    0.000   +0.000   0.000

However if I run ntpdate -q ipv4 of the exposed pod I get

server 172.18.250.139, stratum 2, offset +0.374872, delay 0.02608 27 Dec 22:30:11 ntpdate[2967519]: no server suitable for synchronization found

So, I am not sure what the issue is

My yaml files are below:

#ntp-deployment.yaml

apiVersion: v1
kind: Pod
metadata:
  name: avmc-ntp-app
  labels:
    app: avmc-ntp
  namespace: avmc-ntp
spec:
  containers:
  - name: avmc-ntp
    image: kmgoddard/ubuntu-ntp:latest
    command: ["/bin/sleep", "3650d"]
    imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent
    ports:
      - name: ubuntu-ntp
        containerPort: 123
        hostPort: 123
        protocol: UDP
  restartPolicy: Always

#ns.yaml

apiVersion: v1
kind: Namespace
metadata:
  name: avmc-ntp

#ntp-service.yaml

apiVersion: v1
kind: Service
metadata:
  name: avmc-ntp-app-service
  namespace: avmc-ntp
  annotations:
     metallb.universe.tf/loadBalancerIPs: 172.18.250.139
spec:
  selector:
    app: avmc-ntp
  ports:
    - protocol: UDP
      port: 123
      targetPort: 123
  type: LoadBalancer

I tried exposing the port through MetalLB load balancer exposing port 123 to the NTP server.

What is expected is to return a response such as:

server 172.18.246.246, stratum 4, offset +0.857402, delay 0.02602 27 Dec 22:39:03 ntpdate[2975234]: step time server acmentphost offset +0.857402 sec
