I've just checked both ntp-4.2.0a at mbg-fluxcap-o-win32-setup.exe and
ntp-4.2.0b at 1.1436mbg-xmas-o-win32-setup.exe - they both come with the
same version of ntpdc and ntpq, and so have the same issue.

However I have just noticed on
http://www.ee.udel.edu/~mills/ntp/html/ntpdc.html that ntpdc only
shows a maximum of two flags:
| restrict address mask flag [ flag ]
I was trying to set more than two flags with a single command...

Trying again with just two:
| ntpdc> restrict xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx noquery noserve
| done!

However ntpq 4.2.3p21 at 1.1440-o Thu Sep 14 22:39:55 UTC [1] does
actually allow more than two...

Anyway, the puzzle seems to be solved.
