I think Brooks' solution was to drive the phase of the two clocks to
be 1024 counts apart.  I think it selected "1024" and not zero just
for this reason.   If by chance the two are in phase to start with the
built-in randomness of the 24MHz clock saves the day and then the
control loop forces them eventually to be not in phase by 1024/24M
