Steadily increasing phase error is to let there be a frequency error.
Frequency is the derivate of phase, so it comes with the territory.
So a 200 ns per second phase drift would provide a frequency error of 2
Hz on your 10 MHz. Can't have one without the other.
I understand, I'm just saying that if the absolute phase is wandering a bit over tens of seconds, it's NOT an issue.
