logs running behind from date in virtual machine

On a virtual server,
date was responding with the correct time/date. However logs where filling up with a wrong time. I normally change the timezone like this : (adapt as needed)
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Brussels /etc/localtime [root@main ~]# date Sat Nov 14 21:55:22 CET 2015
/etc/sysconfig/clock change to : (adapt as needed)
Even when those are done the logs kept on showing up logs very long time ago, the cause was rsyslog running behind… never happened before so :
service rsyslog restart
This was also causing my fail2ban to be to easy on this spammers I believe! Questions, remarks, just shoot below !
Update : seems /etc/sysconfig/clock is not per definition the problem, its rsyslog that is keeping the old date, just restarting ryslog seems to be enough!
