Clock stabilization in VMWare hosted machines?

I know this is a major nuisance, but I can't remember how I dealt with 
it in the past.  My most recent stab at using ntpd with minpoll 4 
polling of a local ntp time source isn't working, the clock drift 
prevents any sync from happening (but I'll admit not trying some of the 
more aggressive time adjustment options to ntpd).

VMWare's documentation and support leans pretty heavily toward Linux and 
I'm not finding a decent recommendation from them.

I rebuilding a kernel with options HZ=100 to see if that makes a 
difference, not sure why I remember that helping, but any other 
strategies known to work?
