Suppose you have server A and server B. Server B is running 60
seconds too fast, while server A is accurate. Is there a way to
gradually move server B's time back into sync with server A, without
making a drastic, immediate change to the clock? In other words, we
would like to 'smear' the difference across several hours or days to
ensure there are no drastic changes in timestamps, etc.

This is already how ntpd works. When you first start the service
(usually upon reboot), it will use 'ntpdate' to do a hard set of the
clock, then ntpd picks up and adjusts the clock back and forth to keep
it correct.
