No, don't do that.  /usr/local/, which is intended for locally-compiled
software, is at the front of your PATH and so your local ntpd will be
found before the one the package-management system installed in
/usr/sbin/.  You'll want to edit or replace the initscript in
/etc/init.d/ntp.  Just fix the DAEMON line at the top of the script.
