I tried to avoid that because it would place ntpd outside the normal patch
process. Therefore I googled before I posted and checked if I could find known
problems with Sun's xntpd. I didn't found any mentioning of an oscillation problem.
It was just mentioned that Solaris 8 always slews the clock and "disable pll"
was recommended. (That did not help, as mentioned.) As far as I understand, the
behaviour at my system might be due to a too large frequency error. Would the
update to a current ntp version really help in that case?
