To revisit this:
poll interval is still stuck at 64s even though I have the following
conf file (which predates the startup of ntpd):
"# Limit network machines to time queries only
restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
# localhost is unrestricted
restrict -6 ::1
server time.euro.apple.com iburst
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset
