[ntp:questions] Weird output from ntpq -p

When you run ntpq -p, it outputs a banner with configured ntp server.
But sometimes it outputs something totally different:

    # ntpq -p
    ntpd: time slew +0.000000s

Why does that happen? Is there a bug in ntpq? I can reproduce it and
it only happens very seldom. ntpd version is:

    ntpd: ntpd 4.2.0a at 1.1213-r Tue Nov  8 17:18:10 UTC 2005 (1)
