The main log isn't called *stats.* in any configuration that I've seen. :)

All of my systems' messages for ntpd just happen to end up in 
/var/log/ntp/ntpd.log and everything else is under /var/log/ntp/ in one 
form or another.  That's why I had suggested that search.  I forget that 
it can go to messages if not configured that way but it's been so long 
since I configured my systems to record to independent files.  I just 
carry the config over every time I upgrade the base system.
