[ntp:questions] Poll time while using PPS

Is it normal for all servers listed in a configuration that includes the 
PPS_ATOM refclock to stay at a polling period of 64 seconds regardless 
of how long ntpd has been running?

I've been restarting ntpd a lot lately because of the GPS/PPS debugging 
from the other thread but I've noticed that even if I leave it overnight 
it still shows a poll time of 64 for all servers.  I can undersatnd that 
PPS_ATOM should stay at a low polling interval to maintain accuracy but 
I would have expected other servers to slowly climb up to 1024.
