[PD] bang~ event resolution

With regards to the block limit thread and the following previous discussion
[1], I have a question regarding event timing resolution in Puredata.

In the previous email thread, it was noted:

For example:
1. If I am attempting to send a message every 8msec (5.51 dsp blocks), will
the event actually be sent, rendered, and perceived to occur every 8msec or
will it be rounded up to the next block ( #6 ) at 8.7msec?
2. If an event is scheduled to occur every 1.50msec, will it be scheduled in
time every 1.50msec or every 2.90msec?

I've read the pertinent section of Miller's "Theory and Technique of
Electronic Music", but I guess this is one small bit I'm still hung up on.
