"Skew" is also accurate since it is effectively undoing ntpd's work. :)

FWIW I disabled pacemaker here and it solved the problem of ntpd not being
able to adjust the clock (pacemaker was apparently undoing it). But it is
still not *syncing* the clock after the initial sync, it is building up
delays over time and then fixing them all at once, like it thinks it's an
ntpdate cron job. Apple's config doesn't seem to do anything to make this
