Ok.  I wasn't expecting a noticeable change in the server's peers
billboard (which you pasted from a Meinberg utility on Windows, FYI
"ntpq -p" output from a command prompt is more polite, though still a
little too wide for email and so usually split onto multiple lines for
each entry).

In another response, you indicated your clients are some embedded
systems.  Are those clients still unable to synchronize after you
restarted the server ntpd without restrict configuration?  If they
are, please post "ntpq -p -crv" output, which will show some server
runtime stats that might hint at the reason the clients are not
working with this server.
