Subject:   Time skew

Hi All,

 	I'm facing some strange behavior with an skew in the system clock.
 	The hardware is a Dell PowerEdge 2950III, running two instances of 
FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE-p5 - amd64 over an ESXi hipervisor.
 	To both were allocated 4 processors and 4 GB of RAM, and dmesg for 
both are identical.
 	I'm using clockspeed to synchronize the clock, but just one of 
them is delaying the clock a lot.
 	The hardware clock is ok as far as the other virtual machine.
 	Where should I start to investigate?
