Sorry for eating all the quoted text, but I only wanted to ask you why 
there is no such thing as ntpq for OpenNTPD?

Where do you think would the "server" part get all the information that 
ntpq shows to you?

In order to provide this, the "client" part (ntpd in your scenario) 
would at least have to listen for ntpq queries.

I would think that adding a configuration statement that specifies one 
or more interfaces ntpd should listen on would be the easiest solution, no?
