It does, sort of :-(

On NetBSD-5.0.1 with radioclkd2 + shm and Conrad module tuned
to MSF connected via serial-usb converter, from four attempts
I've twice hit ctrl+c after about 20 minutes, another attempt
completed after 18 minutes with time reset -17.345sec, and
last try completed after 7 minutes with time slewed 0.008s.

If the 7 minutes was typical, I'd go with that method
but waiting 20 minutes or more is just too long.

That's most I can do today and I'll try similar with
chrony either tomorrow or Friday before trying again
with ntpd.
