Sorry.  The details of the original problem (along with the ntp.conf 
files of sysmgr0 and sysmgr1) are in a previous thread.  The subject of 
that thread is  "2NTP Servers with diverging clocks and how to avoid 
stepping backwards in time (repost)"

There is a link to the ntp.conf, peerstats, loopstats, etc. for sysmgr0 
and sysmgr1.
