There was a report on that area mentioned here a while ago.
As long as the smearing is slow enough, the client servers easily track the
drift. There is a bump in their drift, but it's not a problem for ntp. It's
on the same scale as a big change in temperature.
If you are trying to use your drift as a thermometer, things will get screwed
up. If you know the parameters of the smearing server, you could probably
correct for it.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
