ntpsec not managing drift in Daedalus

Since switching from Chimaera to Daedalus ~10 days ago, ntpsec shows it's contacting the servers, but the offset grows by a fraction of a second per day.  It appears it's contacting the servers but not managing the drift, not controlling the clock.

The only changes I made from the Daedalus factory-supplied /etc/ntpsec/ntp.conf file is to comment out the pool entries and add two server entries in order to have consistency from one boot to the next.  These are my server entries:

server time.cloudflare.com nts
server oregon.time.system76.com nts

Doing "ntpq -p" shows this about 3 days after running "ntpdig -S" and restarting ntpsec::

     remote           refid      st t when poll reach   delay   offset   jitter
===============================================================================
+time.cloudflare 10.119.8.155     3 8   33   64  377  10.5348 623.7458   0.5835
+oregon.time.sys 128.138.141.177  2 8   17   64  377  15.7338 627.3030   0.7425

Any suggestions to get ntpsec to put its hands on the steering wheel and drive?

Re: ntpsec not managing drift in Daedalus

I would return the settings to default.

Re: ntpsec not managing drift in Daedalus

In case anyone with a similar question/problem finds this, there is another solution.  I commented out the "tos minclock 4 minsane 3" line, and it appears to work fine now.  I suspect if I had four individual servers declared in the file, I could have kept the "tos ..." line.
