What ntpdc commands did the other people issue?

Kinda hard to try and duplicate / troubleshoot with no real info,
 except its broke.

Supposing there is an real issue,
 perhaps it has already been fixed in a more recent version.

Don't use Undisciplined Local Clock

 It can run away all by itself, and there is nothing wrong with that.
  If that is a issue change to orphan.

Provide all information necessary to duplicate & troubleshoot the issue?

 ntp.conf, (obstruficate as necessary);
  ntpdc commands issued to monitor the server.

Without those, I don't think anyone can hope to guess if there really is a issue,
 or even begin to troubleshoot the issue if it does exist.
