Are you sure that you are actually using NTP to set your clock?
For you to sync with 2000,  you should have had multiple confused
peers from multiple time sources;  possibly a false radio signal....

NTP by default has a panic threshold of 1000 seconds.

This  _should_   have caused NTP to execute a panic shutdown,
instead of setting the clock back  30 million seconds.
