[ntp:hackers] NMEA - which sequence of sentence to use?

Folks,

Looking at (for example):

  http://doc.ntp.org/4.2.6p3/drivers/driver20.html

with the NMEA driver and no mode set, all supported sentences are 
processed, and the last received is used.  I wonder whether someone could 
enlighten me as to why the last, rather than the first, is used.  I would 
have thought that the first sentence was nearer to the true second.

What am I missing?

Thanks,
David
