Re: [5.99.41] clock skew

I quote from http://www.daemon-systems.org/man/ntpd.8.html)

-x, --slew
              Slew up to 600 seconds.

              Normally, the time is slewed if the offset is less than the step
              threshold, which is 128 ms by default, and stepped if above  the
              threshold.   This  option  sets the threshold to 600 s, which is
              well within the accuracy  window  to  set  the  clock  manually.
              Note:  Since the slew rate of typical Unix kernels is limited to
              0.5 ms/s, each second of  adjustment  requires  an  amortization
              interval  of  2000 s.  Thus, an adjustment as much as 600 s will
              take almost 14 days to complete.  This option can be  used  with
              the -g and -q options.  See the tinker configuration file direc-
              tive for other options.  Note: The  kernel  time  discipline  is
              disabled with this option.
