You know the PPS is working because the tally code changes from "*" to 
"o" in the ntpq -p output:

  *    .PPS.            0 l    3   16  377 ....

  o127.127.20.1    .PPS.            0 l    3   16  377 ....

My ntp.conf file also contains local backup stratum-1 servers, and 
Internet servers, in case of failure of the GPS receiver.
