I'm certainly not sure what you are trying to accomplish,
 so, take my examples with a grain of salt.

I think if you provide your current (full) .conf
 and your objectives, someone may be able to
 provide you with more accurate information,
 rather than just making wild guesses.

tos cohort 1 orphan 8 ceiling 10

A more complete example might be something like:
#  Start ntpd with -g, the -g will prevent a panic stop if the time needs to be steped when started
# ntp.conf for ALL (Clients and/or Servers)
tos cohort 1 orphan 8 ceiling 10
restrict default limited kod nomodify notrap
restrict source nomodify
keys "/etc/ntp.keys" # e.g. contains: 123 M LAN_MD5_KEY , 321 M Corp_MD5_KEY , ...
trustedkey 123 321
manycastclient key 123 preempt
multicastclient key 123 preempt
server iburst key 123                   # LAN servers
server iburst key 123
server iburst                            # If you address the server by name append preempt
server tick.corp.example.com key 321 iburst preempt  # Corporate servers
server tock.example.net iburst preempt               # Other servers with permission, following access restrictions
server ntp1.vrlsoftwaresolutions.in iburst preempt   # <http://www.vrlsolutions.com/>

pool in.pool.ntp.org preempt                         # <http://www.pool.ntp.org/zone/@> Regional zones
