As far as I remember, ntpd is a PI controller.  The proportional bit is 
done by applying a decaying fraction of the offset (more or less 
directly if using Linux user space mode, a bit more complex if you can 
only control frequency, as on Windows).

It is just possible it stopped doing this between v3 and v4.
