This is baffling. You've only gone from -34.754ppm to -28.691ppm in over
a day? And you're still not syncing? If the calibration was so bad that
NTP couldn't sync, I'd expect the freq value to hit +/-500ppm before it
gave up. This just doesn't follow my expectations.

Could you provide:
/usr/sbin/ntpdc -c version

Do you see the same behavior if you drop all but one server (including
the local clock: 127.127.1.0)?

You might also add "minpoll 4 maxpoll 4" to the server line to speed up
testing.

Actually, if you could, I'd be interested if you could send your
ntp.conf

thanks
