[ntp:questions] Excessive polling

I recently made the mistake of changing several things at the same time,
coming out of it all with a previously well behaved server that quickly
settled down to 1024s polling intervals now rarely getting beyond 64s.
Amongst the changes:

CPU was changed because it packed in
Upgraded from ntpd 4.1.1b-a to 4.2
Added a simple MSF reference clock

Could any of these things have caused my server to become greedy, or
should I be looking for something else. BTW, I don't have any maxpoll
statements in ntp.conf.
