This doesn't seem to be a problem with cisco, but if you are synchronizing to certain NTP servers (i.e. usno or nist) they currently have reachability problems. So your cisco reports a "." that your ntp is unsynchronized. I haven't found out if the government networks are deliberately throttling traffic or if the links to the time servers are just congested. I have no idea why it started at almost exactly midnight UTC.
