I've installed the release version (just ntpd.exe) on my Windows 2000 
Server PC, Bacchus, without an IPv6 stack (as far as I know).  It appears 
to install and run correctly, although there were two errors reported in 
the event log:

30/05/2009 06:37:45 NTP Error None 1 N/A BACCHUS setsockopt(208, 
SO_EXCLUSIVEADDRUSE, on): Invalid argument

30/05/2009 06:37:45 NTP Error None 1 N/A BACCHUS setsockopt(216, 
SO_EXCLUSIVEADDRUSE, on): Invalid argument

I will e-mail you the full event log.  The performance can be seen here
