[ntp:questions] Handle ntp conf modification when ntp is already running

I am currently using ntpd for my project. My need is to be able to use
new ntp url when I put a new url in ntp.conf even if the ntp daemon is
already running. Currently, I need to kill and reboot ntpd to be able
to use the new ntp url set in my configuration file. i guess that my
solution right now is to start ntpd in a hat process to be able to
restart it if I detect a change in ntp conf file.

Do I have really to restart ntpd to see new ntp url ? I tried to check
option on ntpd to find a way to handle this case but I am not able to
see this feature in the current implementation of ntpd

Thanks & Regards
