you need to read Mill's book.
a) ntpd uses only that meas of the last 8 that has smallest delay.-- ie
about 7 of every 8 meas are thewn away.That increases the time between
effective meas by a factor of about 8,
This is to handle the network jitter problem, and not knowing f the deay
is inbound or outbound. To get around thic decrease the poll interval.
(eg 10 to 7).
b) To bensure stability only  a small fraction of the offset is sed to
alter the discipation.
