As known the PLL implemented in ntpd/ntp_loopfilter.c can overshoot. In
the source code of ntpd 4.1.2 it is documented that this overshoot is
less than 5 percent. Measurements I performed confirm this.
The PLL algorithms in ntpd 4.1.x and are 4.2.x different. The source
code of ntpd 4.2.0 specifies that document UDel TR 97-4-3 documents the
ntpd 4.2 PLL algorithm. Anyone any idea where I can find that document ?
I could not find it via Google, and it's not in David Mills list of
papers (http://www.cis.udel.edu/~mills/papers.html). I'm asking this
because for ntpd 4.2.0 I measured an overshoot of about 100 percent. Can
anyone confirm this ?
