Sorry, all my fault. My question "why is this?" was just too vague. :-)
I was not asking about the sign reversal but about the differing results
(23.17 s/day vs. 23.87 s/day).

Comparing results from Plan A vs. Plan B, I currently fail to figure why
there is this difference.
Maybe it has to do with acquiring the offset for Plan B. I read the
"offset" variable using
ntpq -c 'rv <assoc_id_of_peer>'
but which variable reflects the time when this offset was measured: Is
is the value "reftime", "org", "rec" or "xmt"?
