You might also try a more recent version:

> xPPS(1) .PPS. 0 l 11 16 377 0.000 5.321 2.636
> oGPS_NMEA(1) .GPS. 0 l 10 16 377 0.000 5.285 2.651
> xkraken2.bilink. 184.108.40.206 2 u 396 1024 377 63.208 -23.734 26.911
The o in front of GPS_NMEA indicates it the PPS prefer.
> ntp# cat /etc/ntp.conf | grep -v ^#
> server 127.127.22.1 mode 18 minpoll 4 prefer
You may want to remove that prefer,
and add one below on 127.127.20.1

server 127.127.20.1 mode 18 minpoll 4 prefer ?

This enables PPS on the NMEA ref clock.
You might try noselecting the NMEA / PPSes and gather data
to try and get a fudge time1 PPS offset
&/or a fudge time2 NMEA serial end of line offset.
> server it.pool.ntp.org iburst minpoll 10
For testing with mroe sources, you might try changing that to:
pool it.pool.ntp.org iburst preempt minpoll 10
pool 0.freebsd.pool.ntp.org iburst preempt minpoll 10

For the small number of sources you have, and their offsets,
the single pool server is likely outside the intersection
used to determine true chimers.
You might also try increasing mindist, e.g.:
tos cohort 1 mindist 0.8
