My experience is also that the clock is not stable on FreeBSD 8.X
guest on Xen and KVM HVM. It is unusable as a ntp server for other
hosts and I need to run ntpd to prevent the guest clock from drifting
and jumping.

Some times I get syslog messages about the time going backwards,
which is probably related:

calcru: runtime went backwards from 41668 usec to 35093 usec for pid 96767 

I have not tried this with the CURRENT kernel (which has new and
configurable event timer infrastructure by mav@).

(Linux guests are fine for running ntp server within Xen & KVM.)
