[ntp:questions] drift file set to -500

After running NTPD on VxWorks for a couple days, the ntp.drift file
was set to -500, that made it jump to the infinite loop trying to call
adjtime(), but VxWorks doesn't have adjtime().

I read the ntp documentation. It suggests to disable the time-of-year
(TOY) clock chip. How do I disable this clock chip??

Have anyone seen this "-500" error before? How did you resolve this?

Any advice help,
