Generally speaking, you shouldn't be mucking about with minpoll
or maxpoll. The polling periods are automatically tuned by ntpd to
be pretty much optimal, and unless you have a PhD and ten or twenty
years of experience in this field, you will almost certainly do more
harm than good by trying to specify these values.
As for the rest, I'll leave those for someone else to answer who
has more experience in these matters than I do.
