Once ntpd has started using the pps clock, there is no need for anything
to number the seconds. The system itself does that perfectly fine. There
is no way that the system is going jump a second, unless it is a very
very badly broken system. Ie, one only needs something to number the
seconds at the beginning when you start up PPS. Thereafter pps on its
own is perfectly capable to maintaining the time.
