No application can overcome the ability of people
 to make a mess out of something.

The best you'll likely get is a panic stop out of NTP.

 If the artificial offset is less than panic,
  and ntp had settled to long polls, you will likely have
  to wait many hours for ntp to get back to performing
  the way it was before something messed with the systems time.
