[ntp:questions] Polling vs. Offset

Is there a way to configure ntpd so that when the offset exceeds 1
 millisecond polling will automatically be set to 64 seconds or less?
If I understand correctly, polling currently is adjusted by the speed of
 change in offset.  It takes forever for a large offset to be skewed at
large polling time cycles when the drift is so small that it doesn't
trigger a polling adjustment.  Maybe additional code is needed to configure
this function?
