4.2.2 was released in June of 2006.

Since then there have been 2 *major* releases of NTP, 4.2.4 in December
of 2006, and 4.2.6 in December of 2009.

Your first choice for support for ntp-4.2.2p1-15.el5_7.1 should be thru

Otherwise, your choices for support for 4.2.2 are either free community
help from anybody who wants to look at that release of the source code,
or some other paid support.  The NTP Project does not offer free support
for either older releases of -stable or for vendor-modified code.

NTF does offer support contracts for older -stable versions of NTP.
