If you are running ntpd, you can turn on logging for rawstats. That will
write a line to the log file for the client end of a client-server exchange,
aka when the response to a request-response pair gets back to the client.
Each line will have 4 time stamps. With a bit of arithmetic you can compute
the offset. (I'll say more if anybody wants.)
Note that a server is also a client, so you can use any "server" to monitor
several/many other systems. If you don't want those systems to contribute to
your time, turn on noselect. You can also set minpoll/maxpoll to get more or
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
