The real question is whether the clock is consistently that slow
(actually fast - I think that's the correction rate), or badly behaved.
I would suggest upping the limit and letting it stabilize. Then do
'ntpdc -c loopinfo' once a minute and graph the frequency results.
Also, what do the jitter and offset columns say?
