Is there a way to have it sync more often?

Have a look here https://help.ubuntu.com/7.04/server/C/NTP.html

Maybe rather than sticking the script in a daily cron job you can get it running every hour with crontab -e as user root:-

# m h dom mon dow command
30 * * * * Command to run

This will run the command at exactly 30 minutes passed the hour every hour.

NTP should be maintaining sync automatically. I presume it's installed by default because my system is running it.
