If you are not suffering from wild swings in frequency, you should not 
be trying to reduce the measured offsets.  There are basically two 
causes of high offsets, errors in you own frequency and errors in 
measurement of the time.  The latter you should be trying to get ntpd to 
ignore, and only take the long term average of the time measurement.
