I think it is telling you that your machine has a different time than
your isp. If you run it without -q and then again, it should have set
the time, and the offset would be small. 

So if you want your clock to appear 5 minutes fast and you are in EST5EDT
(AKA US/Eastern) you can "export TZ=EST4:55EDT" or something.
