What problem are you trying to solve by adjusting Minpoll and/or Maxpoll?
I don't believe you can, or should do this. Ntpd selects the poll
interval within the range specified by the default values for Minpoll
and Maxpoll. The defaults are correct for most circumstances. The
only exception that occurs to me is a dial-up connection to a server;
such servers are polled much less often than broadband connections.
