You could simplify this greatly by replacing all of those restrict lines
with this:

restrict default nomodify nopeer notrap noquery

When you only have two clocks there is no way of knowing which is
correct. Either use 1 or 3 or more.

You don't need the broadcast delay unless your ntpd is a broadcast
client AND it is unable to calculate the broadcast delay during the
unicast initialization phase of the broadcast association.
