Thanks for your reply. Indeed, I realize the reason why for differences
over +/-128msec, ntpdate uses settimeofday instead.

This situation occured as our code is using gettimeofday and is
sensitive to sudden changes in time - so we were using -B option. We
should just count the number of ticks instead of gettime, I think.
