Uncertainty of planetary orbital period

I've been searching all over the place, and I cannot find any data showing the error bars of orbital periods of planets. Once source estimates the uncertainty of Jupiter to be "1 arcsec per 250 years" but I cannot find anything to back this up.

Does anybody have any hints as to where I should be looking?

Jack, this is a great question, I have been wondering exactly the same thing. I see no one here replied, but did you find this data somewhere else?
