Again, and I would say «  as usual » , not enough info in the question to make a reasonable guess. A bit like answering the question «  how long is a piece of sting? ».
That said, if you detected that just after starting ntpd, it probably means the you need the « -g » option on startup.
If you were monitoring and the offset suddenly jumped to 70ms, check the delay field to see if it jumped. Maybe your routing changed. If that value stayed constant, check your system load. Maybe ntpd is starving. If that has not changed, go look see what the server was doing.
