Did you wait a day after making changes?
In my experience, the "offset is increasing, time is wandering AWAY
from correct time" phenomenon often occurs when you have been tinkering
with the config file and have stopped and started ntpd many times in
It will only stabilize when you don't mess with it for several hours
after your last restart.
