I might add that making the ppm limit configurable is not the most
obvious thing to do where the problem clearly is a large offset.
Making the offset adjustable seems only logical.

Note that the frequency offset is already configurable (in the kernel)
but for those systems where it isn't, it would be nice to have something
in ntpd.

Yeah. Logging rules!
