Unless you are using some old version, UnrealIRCd also outputs the following directly the error you already pasted:
Code: Select all
TIME SYNCH: Unable to synchronize time: <error>
This means UnrealIRCd was unable to synchronize the IRCd clock to a known good time source.
As long as the server owner keeps the server clock synchronized through NTP, everything will be fine.
UnrealIRCd tries to check the time when it boots, it does this by contacting a number of time servers on the internet. Some firewalls prevent this (UDP port 123, in case you wonder).
If you are sure the time is right then this is a completely harmless error which you can safely ignore. You already know the time is correct after all
