Say, what's the current wisdom on i386 SMP machines and NTP? At 
work, I had to replace ntpd by cron'ed ntpdate because the machine
would drift off several minutes in a few days; the twin machine
running a single-processor kernel is fine with ntpd.

NetBSD-i386 3.0.1, GENERIC-MPAPCI kernel, "hyperthread"ed CPU.
