NTP needs nothing to support IPv6, it's done so for many years. Your O/S
may. What O/S and version are you using?

What's your difficulty with upgrading NTP?

There was at one point a problem in NTP with multicast on some O/S's but
that was fixed a long time ago. We regularly use multicastclient
FF05::101 on the servers at UDel and elsewhere so it's not the current
version of NTP that's the problem. Move to the latest released version
to test that.
