Not to be expected at all!   Is there some problem with your network

synchronize to the local clock, synchronize to and then 
synchronize to the local clock again if everything were working properly.

After burken has been running for at least one hour, please post the 
output of "ntpq -p".   Also post a copy of /etc/ntp.conf
