With Yast ( the SuSE config/admin tool ) you usually do not touch the conf file.
You select some servers, add options and select a server for initial clock setting.
If you have an active firewall holes for ntp are "hacked" to measure.


from the yast ntp client doc:
YaST2 NTP client component specification
