Why do you believe that that offset represents a true error in the 
node's clock time when ntpd doesn't?  If ntpd knew that the error was 
real, it should have removed it.  This question may have a valid answer, 
but expect some resistance from the creators of ntpd, who believe that 
it is always giving the best possible estimate of the true time.
