[ntp:questions] Larger Offsets on HP Proliant DL580s

I have 15 HP Proliant DL 580s and 11 DL 360s all running Linux and  NTP4.2.2.

They are configured to use the local stratum 1 servers.  What I am noticing is that:

 the 580s have drift values between -31 and -91 while the 360s range between -8 and +7

The 580s have offsets between 0.3 and 6.5 (absolute value) while the 360s range between .006 and .997 (except for one outlier)

Does anyone know why the 580s are so much worse than the 360s or offer suggestions for troubleshooting the problem?
