That's "What would Flava Flav do?" if you were curious. There's an interesting article here wherein tests were made of the relative accuracy of various drum machines, time-wise. Not surprisingly, the MPC3000 is tight as a gnat's ass. Equally unsurprising is that the MachineDrum fares quite poorly. Interestingly, their tests showed almost exactly the same results as my own (~100 samples via MIDI, and the dreaded 128 sample hiccup via the internal clock.)
Anyway, some interesting info there, if you're the sort that worries about such things. I'm not, personally. That's what "Quantize Audio" was made for.
