I have used ntpdate command with the -q option for a reason to compare time 
I am also interested in delay time. I figure out that the delay taken from 
ntpdate differs from
value received from ping, ntpq or snoop. I find out that real delay is 
rather equal to
the delay taken from ntpdate subtract constant value 26 msec.

Has somebody noticed the problem or have any advice to fix it?
