Yes, except clock error is not constant either. If computer clocks

There should be some long term drift (known as "rate"), in addition to
short term variation. It's this long term rate that ntpd should be
correcting. Back in the days before atomic clocks, astronomers had to
determine the rate of their clocks and apply the correction in their
calculations.
