Is this what you would expect from ntpq -c clockvar from a system that 
is synced on PPS:

ntpq> clockvar
associd=0 status=0000 no events, clk_unspec,
device="PPS Clock Discipline", timecode=, poll=11425, noreply=0,
badformat=0, baddata=0, stratum=16, refid=, flags=14

rv shows:

ntpq> rv
associd=0 status=011d leap_none, sync_pps, 1 event, kern,
version="ntpd 4.2.7p256 at 1.2483-o Thu Feb  9 01:02:23 UTC 2012 (1)",
processor="sparc", system="NetBSD/5.1", leap=00, stratum=1,
precision=-13, rootdelay=0.000, rootdisp=1.150, refid=PPS,
reftime=d2ec8c38.8b4e0f18  Mon, Feb 20 2012  9:09:12.544,
clock=d2ec8c42.e3f01a01  Mon, Feb 20 2012  9:09:22.890, peer=56093, tc=4,
mintc=3, offset=-0.007, frequency=-78.483, sys_jitter=0.122,
clk_jitter=0.014, clk_wander=0.001, tai=34, leapsec=201207010000,

I guess I'm confused because the stratum and the refid don't match.
