[ntp:questions] Does NTP operates in different mode depending on poll interval?

>From The Nanokernel:

"In operation, PLL mode is preferred at small update intervals and time
constants and FLL mode at large intervals and time constants. The optimum
crossover point between the PLL and FLL modes, as determined by simulation
and analysis, is the Allan intercept. As a compromise, the PLL/FLL algorithm
operates in PLL mode for update intervals of 256 s and smaller and in FLL mode
for intervals of 1024 s and larger. Between 256 s and 1024 s the mode is
specified by the API."

Does NTP operates in a different mode depending on the poll interval???
