That would be correct for the Apple ntpd/pacemaker setup. It's created once
and not updated thereafter, which is the root of the usual problem --- real
ntpd will adjust the drift when it changes, Apple's does not, and new
machines will usually see changes in their clock drift as they settle in.
And the fix is to remove the out of date one, run Apple ntpd or full ntpd
without pacemaker running to let it create a more up to date one, and then
restart pacemaker, as I described originally.
