I am looking at using ntp to adjust the frequency of a
quartz crystal oscillator. i know that ntpd usually
looks up the drift file at start up and uses the value
of the calculated frequency offset. 

i have written a script to start and end ntpd and i
used cron to shedule how often i want it done. could
someone please informed me of a link that gives
details calculation on how ntpd calculates the
frequency offset.

thank you.
