Richard, according the manpage of xntpd:
pll enable Enables the server to adjust its
local clock. If not set,
local clock free-runs at
intrinsic time and
offset. This flag is useful
case the local clock is
trolled by some other device
protocol and NTP is used only
provide synchronization to
...so disabling pll in the configuration of xntpd I would expect xntpd
no longer tries to set the time on the local system. Maybe I
misunderstand this option????
