You need to do more than shutdown ntpd to get back to pre-ntp initial
conditions.  For a real good test you need to set the system clock off
by maybe a minute, or an hour ,or maybe back to 1970.  Remove the drift
file.  Remove the battery from you GPS.  And probably restart Linux to
clera out any save drift.
