The fact of the matter is that we don't have a whole lot of knowledge from the Maya. We know that they were fairly competent astronomers, but without records, we have no way to tell how accurate they were. There is no reason to think they were any more of less accurate than any other civilization.
Think about it...How could we possibly know if they were half a second to a second off? Even if they were, how could we know?
I understand what your coming from. But back around the mayan era their was one mayan that burned all their books, records, documents etc. Except one they found that gave them information on some of their history and what they did.
