ntpd probably reads the leap file while still root, before changing 

You can test that by restarting ntpd and then checking the tai_offset.

You may have to reboot the system.  If you comment out the leap file, reboot, 
then the tai_offset should be 0.  If you reactivate the leap file and restart 
ntpd, then the tai_offset should be correct.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
