I've got a PWS 600au.  As with most of my machines, it's running NTP.
But I keep seeing setclock lines on the console, and /var/log/messages
keeps getting messages like

Aug 21 01:46:01 Omega ntpd[348]: frequency error -508 PPM exceeds tolerance 500 PPM

I'm tempted to just increase NTP_MAXFREQ in
dist/ntp/include/ntp_proto.h and rebuild NTP, but the kernel has the
NTP PLL in it (and hence that might do nothing or otherwise not work),
and I'm also wondering if this indicates something worse wrong.

Any thoughts?
