Not only the queueing discipline but also the buffer in the network
card increases the delay.
You can tune the token bucket regulator to minimize the delay.
See 1.7.2 of TIPS.txt.

ALTQ tries to trigger the next transmission from interrupts and, if it
fails, falls back to the kernel timer.
When the assigned rate is 5Mbps, an interrupt occurs too early to send
the next packet, and CBQ has to wait for the timer tick (10ms interval
When the rate is increased to 6Mbps, an interrupt is allowed to
trigger the next packet transmission.
