I thought you said xntpd reset it about every 20 minutes.  How can it 
then have been stable for several months?

(If ntpd weren't correcting it, but only measuring it, I would suspect 
that you had some other time discipline software that was doing a slow 
adjustment to the clock and which thought the time was 700 to 800ms out.)
