I'm monitoring the drift files of the three servers.

The server which got stuck on -500.000 is now on -62, stable.
Another server which gave "frequency error" is now on -430, stable - I 
guess when the server is rebooted it's likely to give frequency error 
again while ntpd locks on the frequency?

So it looks like that the first server has no clock issues and the 
initial problem was NTP related.
The second server has a clock issue, which I'll try to look into.
