Interesting; I had the opposite experience.  With Snow Leopard the 
reachability was all over the place (using wireless; I didn't try 
Ethernet) and only settled down with Mavericks (and Yosemite).

My FreeBSD server (8.2, 8.4, and now 9.3) has always been spot-on, using a 
different set of sources.

This is using whatever came with the systems, not a ports version.
