is that one of the receivers were the serial line receives the raw puls
with ~50baud and reads the 0.1s (L) pulse as 'x' and the 0.2s (H) pulse
as 'p' or there abouts?
if yes: is your line sense ok? i.e. is there a (inverting) rs232 receiver in front
of RXD or not.
(where) Have you disabled parity check inside ntpd?
