[ntp:questions] ntpd not responding to sntp from industrial controller

We've got a RedLion industrial controller which uses SNTP but
doesn't seem to receive a response from either an AD domain
controller or from ntpd 4.2.7p136 on linux.

tcpdump shows the packets arriving but no response is sent.

I'm not sure of the best way to debug this so tried
  root at kolanut# /opt/ntp/bin/ntpd -g -D 100 2>&1 | grep 10.24.33.98
  read_network_packet: fd=23 length 52 from 10.24.33.98
  receive: at 1 130.102.2.123<-10.24.33.98 flags 19 restrict 190
  receive: at 1 130.102.2.123<-10.24.33.98 mode 3 keyid 00000000 len 52 auth 3

Nearly all the fields are ignored, so what's causing ntpd
not to respond ?  Key ID ?, stratum of 0 as KOD ?
