Unfortunately it doesnt - wanders all over the place, usually lagging.
If I notice it, I usually find otimed.py has overwritten my changes to
the ntp reference (a local timeserver helps a lot - but its still not
great). Depending on where I am connected to, it may or may not see the
site in Germany, which may or may not be extremely slow/lagged. If it
gets too far out, you have to manually set it. It looks like it often
just "refuses" to work. Nothing in the logs. I also noticed yesterday
it says "checking every 600 seconds" - then it went off and started
checking just over every 60 seconds.
