This is obsolete, and if there is anything wrong with it, the only 
possible advice is to replace it with the current version of the
V4 server.

Regular periodic loss indicates either a static frequency error that
is beyond the end stop (500ppm for V4, but less on some ports of V3),
or something else is competing to discipline the local clock.  On SunOS
4, the out of the box configuration did this.
