May I also suggest saving your drift file? Add the following to
/etc/ntp.config:

driftfile /etc/ntp.drift

That's actually xntpd's default values. Would empty quotes work
here?

Ouch! No need to reboot. Just start xntpd (as root) by hand.
A simple "xntpd" does it. It backgrounds itself. I kill the old
one and launch a new one every time I dial in via PPP. Leave the
old one running in order for it to continually apply the drift
corrections. Kill it when I dial in because I get a different
IP address each time and the old xntpd is still bind'ed via my
prior IP address.
