why don't you give any information about your system? If that is in a VM
you better read the posts in centos-virt.

Ntpdate sets the correct time. Within 30 seconds, time will be resettet! From who?

If your hwclock stores local time and your BIOS adjusts it for DST
that would cause a 3600 second time difference or if your hwclock
stores UTC and the BIOS adds an hour to that...

Turn off any BIOS DST adjust feature if it's enabled.

OP: Did the problem start when DST took affect?

If not, then the theory that DST hardware/software features/bugs seems
to be invalidated. Of course, the inverse could be true as well.
