dmesg|grep clock

All those dropped SYN packets since the last reboot may have a lot to do
with that, but "grep clock /var/log/boot.msg" also shows nada -- whereas
I do have this:
<6>Using pmtmr for high-res timesource

and nothing else related to the clock.

Of course it is, but not much of any significance gets logged --
apparently just a line or two to say what source is being used. How is
that helpful, unless all you're interested in doing is changing which
timesource is used? ntpd logs more meaningful stuff into the syslog than
what I find in boot.msg.
