Most ntpd error/syslog messages come from a call to msyslog which
has printf type arguments.

If you have the sources handy, you can grep for part of the text
from the error message.  In this case,
  grep "signal_no_reset: signal" . -r
gets one hit in ./libntp/syssignal.c

Note that it helps to have the sources that correspond to the code
you are running.  You can get that either by tracking down the sources
for the code you are running, or grabbing a known source and rebuilding
and installing.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
