[ntp:questions] SUSE OSS 10 NTPD Clock Drift

I have 'ntpd' running on a SUSE OSS 10 server that has very bad clock
drift. This box drifts about 60 to 90 min per day. The 'ntpd' service
is up and running, and it correctly resets the clock on boot (on
startup of ntpd), but never resets the clock again.

How do I tell ntpd to check the time with a time service a few times a
day to help keep this machine on track? I can not find any
documentation that tells me how to set how often ntpd checks its
sources for updates.

Thanks for any and all info.
