As far as I remember, ntpd is a PI controller. The proportional bit is
done by applying a decaying fraction of the offset (more or less
directly if using Linux user space mode, a bit more complex if you can
only control frequency, as on Windows).
It is just possible it stopped doing this between v3 and v4.
