Don't do this, unless you absolutely need ntpd to freewheel in the absence of a reference time from the GPS receiver or other NTP servers for an extended period of time.

The scoreboard you showed was from an ntpd which had just been restarted-- otherwise your reach would (hopefully) be resembling 377 for all sources.  You need to wait longer before it will settle into a steady state.
