[time-nuts] HP 5370B

The 5335 is specified at 9 digits/second of resolution, the 5370 is
specified at 12 digits/second.
That's 3 orders of magnitude better resolution. That brings up noise that at
9d/s is simply negligible.
My two 5370s are rock stable if I only look at the 9 left-most digits.
While it would be nice to have the same stability at 12d/s on the 5370 as we
get on the 5335 at 9d/s, that simply does not happen.
