I recently did some statistics on historical data kindly provided by
the pool.ntp.org maintainer. From the offsets collected by the
monitoring server it seems that most of the pool servers are 1-10ms
off. This includes all strata, as stratum is not stored in the
database. Also, results for servers farther from the monitoring server
may be negatively affected by larger delay.

20 times more samples could improve the stddev of the calculated mean up to
factor sqrt(20). It would also allow shorter polling interval.
