You wouldn't now.  The system from which you showed that output has
been up for a month.   During that month, either in one jump, or more
likely, continuously, I suspect that the time has been slowed from what
your system clock source would have generated, to match NTP time.

So, while there has been a month and 13 seconds of clock ticks, the
actual time has actually advanced just a month and 7 seconds.

Or that is what I'd assume - but I'm no expert on NetBSD timekeeping.
