The update interval from the tracking report is the interval between
last two updates of the clock. "Ref time" says the last update was 2
days ago and it switched to the local reference (7F7F0101), so it's
not working.

To me it looks like a networking issue. It's odd that it works on
start but consistently fails later (when polling interval gets over 64

Some things to try:
- add "maxpoll 6" to the server lines in the config
- add "acquisitionport 123" to the config
- run "mtr -u -P 123 -B 35 -s 76" and see if there is a
  hop where the packet loss jumps

NTP uses port 123. Also, you want to see both requests and responses,
so something like this should work better:

tcpdump -nn -i enp1s0f0.173 'port 123 and (host or host'
