Technical explanations aside, some sort of clock drift exists in all
computers. My experience with Sun hardware, for instance, was that the
hardware and software clocks rarely agreed.

You should set up your machines to use some sort of time synchronization
software, such as ntp or rdate. When I didn't have a 24/7 net presence, I had
my ppp script run ntpdate when the connection was complete.
