[ntp:questions] Passive client?

I have been reading the ntpd man pages and other documentation at the
iesc but I have yet to find an explicit answer to the following

Is it possible to configure a client so that it never attempts any
communication with a server but simply monitors a multicast group for
updates?  If so how?

A possibly related question: what is the behavior of ntpd if it is
started with a configuration file which specifies no servers?

  Thanks in advance
