I'm having trouble imagining such an application. In particular, if
the application is sensitive to such minor fluctuations in the time
source, I don't see how it could operate on commodity hardware at all;
such fluctuations are present regardless of whether ntp is slewing the
clock or not. You would need to use a separate hardware time source
that is more reliable, at which point ntp is essentially out of the
