I think the best data for this investigation are the actual offsets
measured by the refclock driver, i.e. cooked offset in the refclocks
log. The dispersion of the filtered sample (- in raw offset) could be
perhaps interpreted as a jitter divided by some small constant.
The tracking log is more about the local clock and the statistics log
is from already filtered data from refclocks.
