[ntp:questions] NTPd Implementation Question

All I have a question regarding the configuration of NTPD.

I am attempting to setup a central NTP server and have a number of devices
connect to it but for some reason the host can only connect after I create
a peer statement for them. The hosts are using SNTP with NTP Version 3.

I am not restricting this address space with no peer.

Default restrict statements
restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery

# Hosts on local network are less restricted.
restrict mask
restrict mask
restrict mask

All of the hosts I am currently adding are using private address space the
falls into these ranges.

As I said with the above they are not able to sync

when I add a peer statement per host they connect and sync
# NTP Server Peers
peer version 3

Is there a way I can make this work without having to manually add peer
statements for each device?

Thank you
