Thanks Magnus, I saw the bug report you filed.
Would it be wiser to delete the drift file at boot - by script - and let
ntpd resync and recreate a new drift file?
As mentioned, I don't really need my system to be synced down to the
millisecond, if ntpd takes a few hours to settle and the time is off up
to a few seconds during that time it's perfectly fine with me.
