If you are running ntpd and it uses the kernel pll, there is basically little point, because it's basically doing this already every increment. man 2 ntp_adjtime http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1589 However, you could make the kernel code make the used rate adjustment be -75 ppm plus what's commanded, and back out the -75 on read. That is only a few lines of kernel code, probably. I'm happy to answer further questions (after you've read the man page, RFC, and corresponding kernel code :-).
