The PPS interface is needed for good timkeeping.
I think it needs:
  options         PPS_SYNC

It works fine the first time after the system is booted.  If ntpd is
restarted, it stops working.

It worked as expected in 5.1.2

I can easily test any proposed fix.

/etc/rc.d/ntpd restart (on a system using PPS)
