Thank you for all responses I've got.

The most important information for me came from Danny Mayer:

So I will stop trying and will use broadcast as a workaround
for the multicast until the problem gets fixed.

And because it is already known, I will not report it as a bug.

This would be the last resort. I can't rely on the fact, that ntpd
prefers eth0, or can I ? IMHO using broadcast instead is easier
and the outcome is predictable.
