That indicates the compile-time knob to include or exclude such
tracing code was thrown with "configure --disable-debugging".  Your
packaging mechanism may offer a way to switch to a debug-enabled
package, or you can always build from source or try another way of
tracking down the problem.

I consider 4.2.4p8 relatively ancient, but that branch was maintained
as recently as late 2009:


We're now maintaining 4.2.6 and working to get a newer stable release
incorporating 4.2.7 ongoing development.  There will be no more 4.2.4
releases, most likely.  You might find simply bumping to the
currently-maintained stable release 4.2.6p5 solves your problem  If
not, your problem reports will be more helpful with 4.2.6, as we know
a lot of problems have been addressed since 4.2.4 branched from
ntp-dev 4.2.5 at the end of 2006.
