How long did you let your system run?

NTP adjusts the polling interval.  Usually it does the right thing.
If the temperature and/or load on your system and/or the delays on
your network connection are all stable, it should go up to 1024 seconds.
It takes a while.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
