I checked two typical desktops here: ntpq -c "rv &0"
processor="x86", system="Windows", leap=00, stratum=3, precision=-21,

~477ns ?

loopstats' clock offset and RMS jitter are to the nano-second ?

 That should be good for up to maybe precision=-30 ?

precision=-19 is ~001.907us ?
 Would not a factor of 10 be hundreds of nano-seconds?
