How would decreasing the polling time fix this? I do not understand
the semantics/behaviour of NTP very well.
Taken from the manpage:
These options specify the minimum and maximum poll intervals for
NTP messages, in seconds to the power of two. The maximum poll
interval defaults to 10 (1,024 s), but can be increased by the
maxpoll option to an upper limit of 17 (36.4 h). The minimum
poll interval defaults to 6 (64 s), but can be decreased by the
minpoll option to a lower limit of 4 (16 s).
