[ntp:questions] step and stepout

in my ntp.conf file i write the following sentence:
tinker step 0.01 stepout 1

How can i verify that the ntp algorithm is really behaving following this
command, i.e. stepping only one second after it pays attention to the fact
that the offset with the server is above 10 msec?

By the way, could i write
tinker step 0.01 stepout 0
so that the step is performed immediately when the offset is above 10 msec?

Thank you!
