The native speaker in me suggests:

		This file contains the number of virtual PTP clocks in
		use.  By default, the value is 0 meaning that only the
		physical clock is in use.  Setting the value creates
		the corresponding number of virtual clocks and causes
		the physical clock to become free running.  Setting the
		value back to 0 deletes the virtual clocks and
		switches the physical clock back to normal, adjustable
		operation.

Thanks,
Richard
