Likely as not, that is probably what HP still ships with HP-UX and
"supports," though I've not checked in quite some time.  If the OP is
on a support contract, running the ntp-dev code means he will not be
able to get Response Center support for NTP.  Of course, I suspect
that if he did have a support contract, he would have already gone to
the Response Center :)

If the OP *does* have a support contract, if nothing else, exercising
it to request that HP update the ntp in HP-UX would be worthwhile.
