Steve,

I did that. But when I ran it overnight, the drift file with 500 was
created, (but the ntp was still running). Last time when I ran it for
3 days, the drift file had a value of -500 in the end, and ntp had
stopped sync-ing the clock on the client and no stats file stopped
updating.

How do I tell if ntpd settles down??

Thanks,
Kev.
