Probably not.

You might be able to get get what you want by
 using orphan mode instead of localclock;

  and messing with the e.g. ntp conf tos and tinker options
   to deal with your unstable timebases.

Pick your poison.

I'd probably first look at the source code:
 ntp-dev-4.2.7p306/ntpq and/or ntp-dev-4.2.7p306/sntp

FYI: Lots applications use NTPq to get that kind of
      information for them.
