Don't know what I did wrong previously but just removed lines from ntp.conf, set me6000g as prefer,
restarted ntpd and had following:
   oPPS(0)     .PPSb. 377 -0.002  0.004 pps from GPS
   *k6x400            377  0.246
   +me6000g    .PPSa. 377  0.106        pps from MSF
   -p4x2400c          377  0.533

The above with parallel pps0 at ppbus and /dev/pps0
created using mknod same as tried earlier.

Also tried with p4x2400c as prefer and that's ok.

Replaced /dev/pps0 with /dev/pps0 -> /dev/tty00
disconnected parallel port, reconnected serial (DCD and RxD),
restarted ntpd and that's working ok.

Can't think what I've done different. Then again MSF
wouldn't sync end of last week after I'd made a change
to ntp.conf and then I noticed LED on receiver wasn't
