NTP Server Issues

We are experiencing an issue where we use an internal NTP Server, so we have set up the recorders (servers) and set our time on the individual cameras as well. However when they are deployed to site the cameras actually change what NTP IP address was programmed and replace it with the recorder (server) address and now the time is out of sync. Has anyone else experienced this or know if the camera time shouldn't be set as it pulls directly from the recorder (server) ? Does one supersede the other? This has happened with a couple of different camera brands and is becoming a big issue. Video is new to our group so any suggestions would be great, thanks everyone!
