This is just a subset of the information you get from "ntpq -c rv", e.g.:

associd=0 status=0615 leap_none, sync_ntp, 1 event, clock_sync,
version="ntpd 4.2.6p5 at 1.2349-o Jul 30 11:55:08 (UTC+02:00) 2012  (2)",
processor="x86", system="Windows", leap=00, stratum=2, precision=-10,
rootdelay=0.015, rootdisp=4.447, refid=,
reftime=d83bc128.df638c2d  Wed, Dec 17 2014  9:45:28.872,
clock=d83bc157.26a94acd  Wed, Dec 17 2014  9:46:15.151, peer=29231, 
tc=6, mintc=3, offset=0.171, frequency=500.000, sys_jitter=0.000,
clk_jitter=0.985, clk_wander=0.003

telling on which system ntpd is running, *not* on which system it has 
been built.
