SAM4L AST Calendar mode RTC

Hi,
We are working on SAM4L custom board.
The SAM4L is cleared in PMCON forĀ OSC32K and in set to calendar mode with psel of 1Hz.
ast_conf.osc_type = AST_OSC_32KHZ
ast_conf.psel = AST_PSEL_32KHZ_1HZ
ast_conf.mode = AST_CALENDAR_MODE
An external XTAL of 32.768KHz is connected to the chip.

An AST periodic interrupt is set at a rate of 250msec for internal use, the AST Alarm interrupt is working and the calendar reading advances;
However in a period of 24hours the SAM4 RTC/Calendar if advancing too fast in approx of 10Sec, is shows a difference of 10 seconds in the future (with respect to an ntp synced clock) and it accumulates as time passes.
No Digital Tuner is used, AST->DTR is disabled.

Any ideas what might be the reason for the time diff ?
What is missing in a configuration ?
Thanks,
Arie
