[ntp:questions] stupid, simple question about precision

If 'ntpq -c rl' shows the precision of my clock as -20 (roughly, 
9ns), does that translate to timestamp confidence interval of +/- of 
9ns, or of +/- of 4.5ns) ?

Feel free to point to me to the section of the NTP FAQ I've missed, 
or any other resource that I haven't seen in trying to answer this 
question on my own.

Any guidance greatly appreciated.
