This happens if the clocks of the different servers are not synchronized.
If you have a file whos modification time is in the future, ls will
behave like this. Observe:

$ touch foo
$ ls -l foo
-rw-rw-r-- 1 miquels staff 0 Jan 10 00:01 foo
$ touch --date="05:00" foo
$ ls -l foo
-rw-rw-r-- 1 miquels staff 0 Jan 10 1999 foo

Indifference will certainly be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
