    Is there a way to fix it or I should cancel auto sync?

    Thanks

    If its off a minute or two, don't have it synced and just manually have it set.

    Are you on some sort of corporate or institutional network? NTP (Network Time Protocol) is sometimes blocked on these.

    Can you open a terminal windows and run the command: ntpq -p
    Something like this.

    Code:
    $ ntpq -p
      remote  refid  st t when poll reach  delay  offset  jitter

    tok-ntp-ext.asi 17.82.254.14  2 u 1244  64  1  323.229  -433.79  0.001
    
    The above is from OS X 10.9.5 and the offset is in milliseconds.

    The offset is often a little worse in OS X than other *nix operating systems, due to the apple ntpd / pacemaker implementation. But it should be good enough for most people and certainly not offset by minutes.

    Edit: as mentioned above, some corporate networks block ntp.
