[ntp:questions] Are there algorithm differences between 4.2.4 and 4.2.5?

Are there any algorithm of other differences which might cause noticeable 
performance differences between 4.2.4 and 4.2.5?  For example:

- 4.2.5 being more reluctant to increasing the polling interval from 64s 
(with a mixture of local stratum-1 and Internet pool servers)?

- 4.2.5 showing an increased variability of offset when viewed on a 
timescale of minutes?

Of course, these may just be different manifestations of the same 
underlying difference.
