[ntp:questions] offset values

Sometimes when I run a:
./ntpq -c "rv 0" -c "rv <peer sync assID>"

I have 2 != offset values, from system variable (rv 0) and peer variable.

System variable offset in source code is obtained from clock state machine
variables (last_offset)

What is difference between system variable offset and peer variable offset?

I appreciate any help.
