some questions, which could help you to help yourself:

  do you start your emacs-21 session with the old emacs-20 init file ?

  what do your (old ?) init file or (new !) site-lisp directories
  contain, which could be relevant to diary and calendar ?

  did you try to start your emacs-21 session with the options
  --no-init-file --no-site-file and then set up  your calendar/diary
  step by step from scratch ?

have a look at a file named NEWS (in the etc directory of the emacs-21
tree ?) for 20->21 changes of diary and calendar.
