Yeah, it is nice when they line up, but much of the time either almost
all the precision is lost for a local refclock, or the 8 digits
of precision is pointless for a WAN pool chimer.

And I can't count the number of times people have asked me what the
units are because they can't figure it out.  You should not have to read
pages of docc to find the current units.

Check out chronyc, they do a lot of things much better than ntpq.
