Issue

The 'show ntp' command shows that the device is synced to the secondary NTP server, while the primary is still available and connected.

 > show ntp

NTP state:
NTP synched to 0.pool.ntp.org
NTP server us.pool.ntp.org connected: True
NTP server 0.pool.ntp.org connected: True

 

Cause

PAN-OS syncs to either the primary or secondary server based on an algorithm that chooses the best server, depending on values like stratum or delay. The terms primary and secondary servers are not based on priority.
