Yes, this now works as expected. I now see the log entries 'refclock pulse ignored offdiff=0.38' and understand this relates to the delta between locking clocks, and not the system time.

Please note that the second argument of makestep is number of updates
and not seconds.

OK, I had assumed one update per second from both refclocks. There is no reason to restrict the number of updates in this way for my use case, and I've extended the configuration to the default 1000 updates.
