How are you connecting it up and/or what's in your conf file?
Which refclock are you using?

I didn't know NTP could do what I think you are describing.

The PPS driver (refclock_atom) expects the PPS signal to
arrive on the second boundary.  It needs some other source
of time (a server marked prefer) to know which second the
PPS signal matchs.

The suespammers.org mail server is located in California.  So are all my
other mailboxes.  Please do not send unsolicited bulk e-mail or unsolicited
commercial e-mail to my suespammers.org address or any of my other addresses.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
