Careful. That is "Offset", not the common sense meaning of offset,
which might be put something like: the true error between the local
clock and true time.
To the extent that is possible to say that "Offset" accurately
represents offset, ntpd's algorithms are flawed, and need improving
until "Offset" again consists only of measurement noise. Whether they
are actually flawed is the basis of the long running dispute between
Unruh and Dave Mills.
