The drift on my linux-2.6.10 box is below permitted limit but the value 155
ppm seems to be quite large. Therefore I used adjtimex --tick 10001 command
in the beginning of ntpd start script and as expected, the new value of
drift stabilized around 56 ppm after one day. My question is if such
intervention can in principle improve behaviour of ntpd or not. The ofsets
of my peers remain mostly below one or two msec just as before.
