The NTP adjustment is a positive number (see below). Does this mean the
clock is running slow?

Yes. In the existing AMI, I just reset the clock again. Since I filed
the PR, it had drifted "offset 0.124360 sec". While writing this email,
it has drifted another "offset 0.009534 sec". I will let it go without
correction for a while now.
> 3. Did the clock _drift_, or _jump_?
Good question. Based on a handful of invocations of ntpdate, I would
say that it drifts. The offset is different each time. ...
