I'm just compiled up ntp-dev-4.2.0a-20050127 and testing it on
openbsd-current/amd64.  One change I noticed from
ntp-dev-4.2.0a-20040506 is that the poll time no longer ramps up to
1024 seconds.  It is now stuck at 64 seconds.

The only unusual thing I can think of is that one of peers is down.
That never used to cause the poll to get stuck in the faster poll
mode.  Could it be that the newer logic keeps ntp polling quickly
until everybody is reachable?
