Personal experience. When I burn a CD, my machine loses serial
interrupts, and NTP claims to have lost sync. When I complained about
this on c.p.t.ntp, someone suggested looking at hdparm, and sure enough
unmasking made the problem go away. Now, the clock loss was not nearly
as massive (say 5 minutes from burning 3-4 CD's), but I still think it's
something the OP should pursue.
