What is PHC? Could it be trailing-vs-leading-edge-of-a-pulse problem?

322ms is a huge offset and I wonder if anybody has an idea of what could be
the root source.
ntp-clock-1 and ntp-clock-2 are two proper grandmasters.
ntp-clock-2 is geographically far.
ntp-clock-1 is in the same location.
PHC0 is a clock on an Intel card running under igb driver.
The PTP port of the card is connected to a PTP-enabled Cisco Nexus switch,
which is connected to a PTP grandmaster. The same grandmaster in fact, which
is also a NTP source ntp-clock-1.
I would understand 36 secons of a difference (TIA vs GMT) or some
microseconds of a difference (some network and PCIE jitter). But a third of a
second is very strange.
Do you have any ideas?
By the way, for synchronization of on-the-NIC PTP clock I tried using ptp4l
in both software and hardware mode and that did not make any difference.
