Subject: [SunHELP] OS time falls behind on SF4800

I have an issue where the TOD falls behind on the OS roughly 1-3 minutes
per day.  There is a sunsolve document reference to fix a similar
situation by setting tod_broken=1 in the kernel.  I have done this but
the writeup discussed that it was related to the SC's being up over 500
days.  This is not that case and the time shown from both SC's has
always shown correct.  The OS is configured to use the same ntp server
as the SC's but even if xntpd is not running the TOD still falls behind.
Hoping someone on the list may have a suggestion.
