Hi all,


       I'm new to NTP. Currently I'm facing an issue where, during
shutdown my client application is receiving a message from ntp demon
with message type 15. Since this is an unexpected message type, my
application crashes. Not always ntpd sends this message. Chances of
getting a message are once or twice out of 20-25 trys. Can anyone help
why I'm receiving a ntp message with message type 15? 

expected message types are:

enum imsg_type {








Thanks & Regards,
