Thank you, I'm ashamed I missed that.  I did look at that page
briefly, and I overlooked what I was searching for.  I was looking to
see if the information was in a similar place to where it is in
ntp-dev's refclock.html -- right before the list of drivers.  The
intervening Performance Enhancements section was enough to foil my
hasty check.

And http://doc.ntp.org/4.1.0/refclock.htm has a _much_ better
description than what's in ntp-dev now.  It seems to me both pages'
calibration content should be placed in ntp-dev's documentation, and
the code should be changed to allow calibration to other than ATOM.
Thanks again for catching my oversight.
