I can confirm this problem with ntpd-4.2.2, as I'm seeing this on one of
our GPS receivers which is having intermittent reception at the moment.
Here are ntpq -np outputs I happen to have logged from one of its peers
at consecutive two-minute intervals this morning:
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
+184.108.40.206 .GPS. 1 u 20 64 377 5.780 0.087 0.055

(<C1>>^Vb is textified ASCII of 188.8.131.52, another peer)
Time to log a bug?
