I don't think you're using the kernel PPS signal, so you may not have
compiled the kernel with the PPS_SYNC option. This is what you should
see, notice the "o" and mentions of PPS in kerninfo output (this
output is from my system at gauss.kenyonralph.com):

kernel status:         pll ppsfreq ppstime ppssignal nano

Thanks, for that.  With the "ntpdc -c kerninfo pixie" command, I did get 

  status:               2107

and from what I did before with the earlier FreeBSD 5.0 system, that 2017 
status decodes as:

  status: 2107 pll ppsfreq ppstime ppssignal nano

just the same as in your system.  The "*" instead of the "o" does confuse 
me, though!

C:\>ntpq -p pixie
